And the other genius in this crime blundering duo looks about like you'd expect him to look as well. Here we have a one Nicolas Tatum who wandered into a Walgreen's in Naples and "...demanded a bottle of an undisclosed medication" reported the Naples Daily News. Instead of openly brandishing a weapon such as a 12-inch Bowie knife, Mr. Tatum used the old pointed-finger-in-the-jacket-pocket ploy. I'm assuming it was a ploy, as he told the pharmacy tech that it was a real gun which is one of the leading indicators that there is no gun in there.
So while he's trying to be Pointy von Scary-Robber, another pharmacy tech comes over and asks if he's been helped. Wow! Now that's customer service for you right there! And in a flash of inspiration, the tech asked Tatum "...for his name and birth date." You know, "...so he could check for his prescription."
Do I lie about these things? Of course not. They're just going to start happening in twos down in Flori-duh from now on, I can feel it. As if you need any more proof, here is a list of some of the other stories that were being covered on Tampa's 10 Connects:
