Thief robs an arcade with a cup of coffee

February 11, 2010

In most stories about robberies, thieves will use conventional weapons such as knives or guns but on some occasions they like to try out new things – like cups of coffee. Such was the case at an arcade in Hamelin, Germany were a thief threatened a 26 year old attendant with just that. There aren’t many details beyond that but one of the amusing things from the article discussing this is “The police also didn’t give away too many details about the robbery, as they said that they don’t want to encourage others by giving them store-robbing ideas.” Unless there was something else the thief had at his disposal like a coffee spraying gun, then I’d say it’s a little too late for that.
