Rattled robber retreats     Send a link to a friend

[AUG. 8, 2003]  A pharmacy clerk shocked a would-be robber yesterday afternoon.

The man came into the First Care Pharmacy at Fifth and Jefferson in downtown Springfield. He strolled around the store a bit and picked up a candy bar and a can of soda pop. He then went to the checkout counter at the front of the store and paid for them. Then he told the clerk he had a gun in his pocket and wanted money.

The clerk just began screaming, loudly. So loud that pharmacists at the back of the store were alarmed.

The robber apparently was so unnerved he left the store, leaving behind his candy and pop. The store made 200 percent profit off him.
