Would-be robber drops gun, pants during failed hold-up
This bumbling armed robbery suspect didn’t dress for success.
Police in Colorado are looking for a man who fumbled his weapon and briefly dropped his pants while trying to rob an e-cigarette store in Aurora on Sunday.
Video footage of the incident shows the suspect approaching the counter at eCig of Denver before pulling out what the owner later told police was a BB gun. But the bumbling suspect fumbled the weapon over the counter and then tried to retrieve it before the owner grabbed the gun, video shows.
The suspect then turned and frantically ran out of the store, jumped into the door as he momentarily lost his pants. He was wearing gloves at the time, but the store’s owner said police were still able to gather evidence from the incident.
“There were no fingerprints in the store, but definitely on the firearm itself,” owner Chris Burgess told KDVR. “You know, the clip and everything, they got fingerprints off of that.”
Police are continuing to search for the suspect as of Wednesday. Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Metro Denver CrimeStoppers at (720) 913-7867.
