Coffee shop owner Jason Wilson tells the Idaho Statesman says he believes the man was likely not prepared when he entered Big Star Coffee with accomplice.  Wilsonasked: “Who robs something with underwear on their head?”  Apparently these guys…and they’re still at large. Investigators say the two burglars made off with about $500 in cash that was inside the safe.  I really hope they had an extra pair and didn’t just whip on the pair they were wearing.

Christopher Slate and Sean Mosey ordered plenty of onions on their McDonalds burgers but they got fewer onions than they’d wanted.
