Remote Crime II

A man with a gun announced a robbery at Eddie’s Grocery in Leavenworth, Kansas. The store owner used the only weapon he had to defend himself: a television remote control, which he pointed at the robber. When the gunman saw it, he ran. Police stopped someone matching the suspect’s description, and the 21-year-old man confessed, police say. Officers found his gun, which was not loaded. (JW/Leavenworth Times) ...The suspect felt like a real fool when he found out that the remote didn’t have any batteries in it.
