He was also the getaway driver!
A bizarre case of jewelry store robbery took place in Brazil where the store was held up by the unlikeliest of robbers one could imagine. The robber was a wheel-chair bound 19-year-old who simply rode into the store and handed a note to the cashier telling him to fork over the money. A simple plan that was also being captured by the CCTV camera in the store. The robber wore a simple mask and attempted to clear out the store while in his chair, as it emerged.
The store clerk did not take him seriously at first and even ignored his note, moving to the other parts of the store but then the adrenaline kicked in (perhaps) and the robber pulled out a gun. Only the gun was held in his feet as the disabled man had no arms to use. At one point, according to reports, he even cocked his weapon. Now, one could feel sorry for the man for his disability (he was mute too!) but one has to admire the sheer balls on the guy to even attempt such a thing.
The store clerk relented and let him get away as was the sensible thing to do and then called the cops. Apparently, the robber couldn't make it far in his wheelchair and the cops were able to catch up to him.
Given his disability, the cops booked him but let him leave on bail as he was not deemed a flight risk, which is bitter-sweet in a strangely ironic way. Clearly, robbery is not an ideal career path for the man!
