Take a Note

“This is a robbery” said the note a man passed to the clerk at a convenience store in Dover, Del. The robber demanded cigarettes, and the clerk handed over 17 packs, but refused to give back the demand note. The robber fled, and police arrived within seconds and stopped the suspect’s vehicle. Bruce Manlove, 36, was arrested when officers found 17 packs of cigarettes in his car.

(RC/Dover Post) ...He won’t be needing prison release paperwork anyway.
