Someone who should have thought a little more

If you're looking to score a few quick bucks, you could do worse than armed robbery of your own grandmother.

Ah, who am I kidding. You couldn't do worse. Robbing your grandma is about as low as you can go.

Brian Keith Grunewald has been accused of robbing his own grandmother with a shotgun, deputies say.

According to an arrest warrant, the 33-year-old used the weapon to force the elderly woman to write him a $350 check last week. But the check did not turn into cash as he anticipated. Instead, it landed him behind bars on an aggravated robbery charge.

The warrant said Grunewald wanted money from his 77-year-old grandmother. He reportedly urged her to write him a check. The arrest document said when she refused, her grandson became irate.

According to Bexar County Sheriff's deputies, he continued to demand the check. Investigators said he went to his bedroom in the home he shares with the victim in the 8200 block of Gardner and got a shotgun.

And then he forced her to write a check. And then he tried to cash it. Ultimately, he wasn't successful, and he was eventually caught by sheriff's deputies, but he has forever alienated himself from family reunions and skeet shoots.
