Robber on a roll left cash behind

September 06, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

A robber in a wheelchair armed with a bat and a knife rolled into a Dallas 7-Eleven, police said, and left with a lot of condoms and an energy drink.

Police Cpl. Kevin Janse said the man rolled straight to the cash register Wednesday afternoon and beat it with a baseball bat until it opened.

But he didn't grab any cash. Instead, police said, he took 10 boxes of condoms and an energy drink.

Janse said the suspect may have been homeless and was probably intoxicated. He remained at large.
