Detectives allege they returned a half-hour later, drunk, and asked the clerk to hand over the surveillance video.One suspect allegedly brandished a knife and cut the store clerk on the arm. The clerk needed stitches. What would have been a misdemeanor theft charge suddenly became felony for assault with a deadly weapon.The three escaped, but were apprehended in short order, the TV station said.

Dial “D” for Dummy – Not everyone is cut out to do phone sales. That’s the lesson learned by two Florida men, who ended up behind bars after calling a guy and trying to peddle an I-Phone and I-Pad.  Appropriately-named Devonte Suckie and Zachary Swindle held up Hank Yan at gunpoint, snagging the devices and $500 in cash. After finding his number in the phone, they rang him up and offered to sell the stuff back at a good price.  It was an offer Yan couldn’t refuse — although he decided to bring some uniformed friends in to help him carry the merchandise, and haul the two crooks off to jail.
