A man attempting to rob a beauty supply shop Wednesday night had trouble opening the store's cash register--so he took it with him.
The robber made off with more than $300 in cash along with the store's Casio-brand cash register which employees estimate weighs about 40 pounds.
"He kept saying, 'Which button am I supposed to push?,' " said Yen Nguyen, the hair stylist who was held up at gunpoint. "If you don't push the right button, the cash register makes a beeping noise. I kept hearing it beep. I think that's why he just took it."
The man walked into the shop, in the 28000 block of Golden Lantern Street, at 8 p.m. on Wednesday. He pointed a gun at Nguyen, ordered her into a back room, made her lie on the floor and put a jacket over her head, Sheriff's Lt. Dick Olson said.
