Note to would-be robbers. A stick up requires a gun.
Sheriff's deputies in Greenville, S.C., are looking for a man who tried to hold up a liquor store — with his finger.
The suspect walked into the store Monday, pointed his hand at the cashier, and asked her to empty the register, Greenville County Sheriff's Sgt. Shea Smith told the The Greenville News.
Instead, Smith said, the clerk just ran past the unarmed robber and out the door, where she tried to flag down passing cars.
The man, described as a black male about 5 foot 8 inches tall, then left the store himself without having a shot at the suddenly unattended register.
Lest readers suspect it was just a joke on the handman's part, he did wear a stocking cap over his face.
