While we’re on the topic of robbery, here are two others I particularly enjoyed, both involved robberies of adult book / video stores.
1. A man tried to rob an adult video store early one morning. This being the third time in several months that this particular clerk had been robbed in the last three months, the clerk reached under the counter and then lunged upward, smacking the would-be robber with a ginormous prosthetic masculine appendage, at which point the robber fled (likely in shame).
2. A man successfully robbed an adult bookstore early one morning. Instead of much about with just taking the money or the cash drawer, he decides to take the whole cash register. While there was a canine en route the scene, the first responding officers were able to follow (and I am not making this up) the unspooling cash register receipt that trailed him all the way from the store to the apartment buildings across the street. They found him inside very quickly.
