    Wild armed robbery goes off the rails in Nanaimo, one man charged

    What with all the stress caused by coping with Covid-19, here's a story that may make you smile.
    Only in Nanaimo.
    I laughed so hard I spilled my scotch regarding the keys and truck:

    Wild armed robbery goes off the rails in Nanaimo, one man charged
    Mar 24, 2020

    NANAIMO — A man was arrested following a bizarre botched armed robbery at the 7-Eleven convenience store in Harewood.

    Nanaimo RCMP said it happened Friday, March 20 at 4:30 p.m. when the man walked into the convenience store carrying a bag.

    Police said the man pulled a replica firearm from the bag and placed it on the counter after demanding money.

    A customer then picked up the gun and began hitting the suspect with it, according to police.

    The suspect took off and ran toward a vehicle.

    Police said it turns out the would-be thief left his keys in the ignition, allowing another unknown man to briefly steal the truck.

    An alert citizen interrupted the theft before the vehicle could leave the area.

    The driver dropped the keys to the ground.

    Police said Alexandre Babin, charged for the attempted robbery of the convenience store, eventually found his truck but not the keys.

    Police said Babin, 29 of no fixed address, was arrested several blocks away.

    He was held overnight in custody and is slated to appear in court on June 2.

    Anybody with additional information about the incident is asked to contact Nanaimo RCMP.

    10 bucks says they both voted Lieberal.
    The challenge of retirement is how to spend time without spending money.
    There is no place in an anti's head where reason can enter. from a Napoleon saying with a tweak.
    Look around is there someone you can introduce to shooting because that’s the only way we will buck the anti gun trend sweeping Canada! "tigrr 2006"
