Armed robber decides $11 not worth it
An attempted armed robbery at Unique Super Tan, 20232 Van Born Road, Oct. 12 came to an unusual conclusion when the robber apparently decided that the $11 in the business’ cash register was not worth taking.
An employee told police the man entered the store and said he needed to tan. He then grabbed her by the wrist and told her to give him all the money in the business, she said. As he was restraining her, the employee noticed a knife slightly protruding from his shirtsleeve, she said.
When she presented him with the $11 from the cash register he said he wanted more. When she said it had been a slow night and that the $11 was all she had, the suspect released her and fled without taking the money.
