Theft attempted with note threat
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — It’s not the kind of greeting card you’d ever want to get.
Philadelphia police said a man tried to rob a downtown Hallmark store on Jan. 24 by handing the cashier a card containing the handwritten message, “Give me all the money or I will kill you.”
The store cashier was apparently unimpressed with the would-be robber’s hostile prose. Police said the person called over another store employee, and the suspect ran off without any money.
