” Who robs pizza joints? Normally, that’d be more of a rhetorical question, but one would-be thief in Indiana helped to shed some light on that for us. The answer to that question is: incompetent ski mask-wearing thieves.
According to local reports, 30-year-old Freddie McCoy of Richmond, Indiana, attempted to rob Mercurio’s Pizza. We’re a little bit rusty on our Italian, but we think that “Mercurio” roughly translates to “We’re packin’ heat!” The store owner at Mercurio’s, Terry Padgett, drew his gun and fired on the would-be robber.
The robber was hit a total of three times. McCoy fled and made it to the sidewalk before collapsing. The police showed up and hauled McCoy off to the hospital, but unfortunately he passed away as a result of his injuries.”
