Clumsy robber

Sometimes the bad guys make it so easy for the cops.

Police say Michael Kern, 18, was one of three men who attempted to rob a man at knifepoint Oct. 24 at an apartment complex in the 8700 block of Fredericksburg Road.

The victim said he was walking his dog when Kern and two others approached and repeatedly asked for the time, the affidavit says. One of the other men pulled a knife on the victim, who started running.

Investigators discovered Kern’s wallet on the ground next to a vehicle. The victim saw the photo and said, “That’s him,” identifying Kern.

Can you just imagine the conversation after the attempted robbery when the muggers all go to McDonald's or someplace.

"Hey Kern, it's your turn to buy the fries."

"Whoa, what the... Hey, where is my wallet? Did one of you guys take my wallet?"

Cue the sirens...
