Here's a recent case
of a man who is obviously not cut out for a life of crime:
What a cashier first thought of as a practical joke turned into no laughing matter for a Ranson man who was arrested Wednesday after using women’s underwear and a lighter shaped like a small gun in an attempt to rob a convenience store...
“He entered the store wearing a pair of women’s pajama shorts over his face,” Sgt. T.C. Kearns of the West Virginia State Police said Wednesday. “I couldn’t make this stuff up if I tried.”...
“At first she (the cashier) thought it was a joke,” Kearns said.
[The robber] then pulled out what appeared to be a handgun and demanded money.
“She was unsure if it was an actual gun or a cigarette lighter in the figure of a gun, which the store used to sell,” Schuessler wrote in the criminal complaint filed in Berkeley County Magistrate Court.
The cashier refused to give the man any money, and [the robber] fled the scene in a Jeep Cherokee on Gerrardstown Road.
The guy was later picked up and arrested. He had the underwear with him. He's being held on $31,500 bail.
