Apparently auditioning for stupid criminal tricks…
Via the Times Union:
A knife-wielding, masked man expecting to rob a convenience store of its cash ran out with only a cookie Monday night, city police said.
Police on Tuesday gave this account of the caper:
The man entered the Saj Mart at 125 Hoosick St. at 11 p.m. Holding the clerk at knifepoint, he demanded cash. The clerk said there wasn’t any as the nightly cash drop had just taken place. The man grabbed a Grandma’s Cookie valued at $1 and fled. The flavor was not immediately known.
Love how the police actually make a point to say they haven’t identified the flavor of cookie as of yet.
The suspect is still at large, but local store owners are encouraged to be on the lookout for a masked man looking to pilfer a large glass of milk.
