A robbery that wasn't
JOLIET -- If you arm yourself, put on a ski mask and walk up to the counter demanding money but nobody is around to hear it, is it still a robbery?
Police say it's an attempt. Two men and one juvenile face charges after reportedly trying to pull a stickup that lacked victims.
Deputy Chief Mike Trafton said Sanjuan F. Reyes, 22, Jose M. Torres, 17, and a 16-year-old Joliet boy met around 7:30 p.m. Monday in an alley near Supermercado Viva Mexico, 600 E. Jackson St.
"They'd decided to rob the grocery store and put on ski masks and bandanas. The 16-year-old went inside with an air pistol while the other two acted as lookouts," Trafton said.
The two men reportedly told detectives they saw the teen walk up to the register, look around and come back outside.
"He said, 'What the (expletive)? No one's in the store,'" Trafton said.

They should hit the books and learn you need to "CASE" a joint before robbing it...ya know...to make sure there's people in there.No one has greater love than this, to lay down ones life for ones friends - John 15:13

These idiots couldn't figure out how to open a cash register so no employees=no robbery?
Give them all the canned food they can eat in jail, just don't give them a can opener
