An would-be robber tried to hold up a Dunkin’ Donuts at gun-point in Philadelphia on Monday.
Wouldn’t you know it, but two cops just happened to be sitting in their squad car right in the parking lot (what are the odds?), and immediately noticed the man was wearing a Halloween mask. The man drew his gun and told the clerk to open the register — but within seconds, the officers appeared in view, guns drawn, and subdued him without incident.
It was a good catch, as it turns out the same man was responsible for another armed robbery at a Family Dollar in the same neighborhood.
And, to top it off, the guy was brandishing a BB gun.
As the daughter of a Sheriff, I can attest to the fact that cops do in fact love donuts, and we used to joke that a local donut shop was safer than Fort Knox. Clearly this BB-toting robber didn’t get the memo.
