A.B. I know this guy was wearing a hat & dark hoodie but haggling over candy for 2 minutes usually isn’t a smart move when robbing a convenience store. I would have to imagine that the less time you spend on camera in these types of situations, the better. Now thanks to this criminal’s stupidity the cops have his voice, his mannerisms and a pretty decent height/weight description all on film.
But the best part is that even after this 2 minute back and forth & even having the worker take the correct change from his hand, this thief wasn’t able to keep the cash drawer open long enough to grab the cash. Instead he had to rip it from the wall – safety wire an all. What are the chances this genius remembers to wipe off his fingerprints when he ditches the box in the back alley? I’m saying 3,000 to 1.
