And the Word “Bomb” Written On it in Crayon

Anthony Craig Dobson, 44, of Henry County, Ga., was taken into custody on two counts of robbery of a fast food restaurant and a credit union. Fayette County law enforcement officers also want to question Dobson about two other armed robberies and a “robbery by sudden snatch” (what everyone else calls “purse snatching”). Bolton said that Dobson’s approach was pretty unconventional: he “armed” himself with a garage door opener with a telephone cord wrapped around it, and claimed it was a bomb. He allegedly used the threat of detonating it to demand cash from the two businesses. (JW/Atlanta Journal-Constitution) ...He also used it on dates, telling women “I can open doors for you.”
