It Wasn’t Exactly Toughest Case To Crack

Associated Press

A liquor store robber made things easy for police here. He left his driver’s license behind when he fled.

Police said the bandit entered the Apollo Liquor Store on Friday, indicated he wanted to buy a bottle of wine and presented his driver’s license as identification as required by Indiana law.

Then he demanded money, knocked the clerk down and took off with $100, leaving his license behind. Officers later arrested Wayne K. Brewer, 35.

The clerk did not require medical treatment.
