When Mattel launched Day to Night Barbie in 1984 under the slogan 'We Girls Can Do Anything', theft probably wasn't what they had in mind.

But now two accomplices under the name Barbie and Ken have been caught snatching iPads in Denver, reports the Denver Post.

Turns out this isn't the first time either. Both have been linked to a few iPad thefts throughout Denver happening from April to June.

The real-life Barbie, a 25-year-old, allegedly responds to iPads for sale on Craigslist. When she's about to make the transaction, she grabs the device and speeds off with 27-year-old Ken Sigala waiting in the car, per Cult Of Mac. With the pair's iconic names, it's a shame they didn't pay tribute with a hot pink Barbie Ferrari as a getaway car.

So what awaits the duo? According to The Denver Post, Ken gets a felony charge for providing false information to a pawn broker and Barbie faces charges for theft and robbery with arraignment due later in September.

This isn't the first time Barbie has been accused of a crime. Back in June, Greenpeace called Barbie a serial killer for getting caught up in rainforest destruction in Indonesia, according to a report by the Huffington Post. The environmental organization said because Barbie's packaging comes from the Indonesian rainforest, killing off the rainforest is harming the habitat of endangered animals. See the video where Ken breaks up with Barbie over her serial killing ways.
