A Washington state man tried to turn his taxi into a real cash cab – by pulling a stick up at a gas station when his driver pulled in to use the restroom. Karl Elliker walked over to the cash register and told the clerk he was sorry, but had no choice but to rob the place. Elliker, who said he had a bomb, demanded all the twenties that were in the register – but panicked when the employee told him there weren’t any, since he’d just done a cash drop. Elliker quickly hopped back into the taxi, but the clerk was able to get a license plate number and cops pulled the vehicle over a short time later – at which point Elliker admitted he didn’t have a bomb at all.
