A would be thief in Vernon, B.C. took no for an answer two out of three times! In the end his persistence paid off.
It all started last Tuesday evening when the man entered a Vernon Square Dollar Store at about 5:45 pm. He demanded money but the cashier refused and he left. The then entered a Money Mart at 7:20 pm, pulled a knife, and demanded money. Again, the teller refused to hand over the cash so he left. (why’d he bother with the knife?)
Finally, at about 9 p.m. he robbed a gas station and fled with an undisclosed amount of money. I guess they finally took him seriously at the gas station.
He is described as a skinny man in his 20s with light brown or blond hair, about five-foot-six.
I guess as the saying goes, if you fail, try and try again. He sure did!
