    Bad : Robbed Pharmacy with Samurai Sword

    Some folks never cease to amaze me. He tried to rob this twice in the same day. Too bad the pharmacy folk are not armed or they could have put this thug on ice and stopped his robbery attempt.


    Man arrested for using sword to rob pharmancy

    LYNCHBURG, Va. (AP) -- Police in Virginia have arrested a man accused of trying to rob a Lynchburg pharmacy twice in the same day - once while wielding a sword.

    Lynchburg police arrested 27-year-old Michael Edward Towler and charged him with robbery, brandishing a weapon and attempted robbery.

    Pharmacist Michael Robertson says a man tried to rob the pharmacy Wednesday morning, but Robertson told him they had set off an alarm and police were on their way, so the man fled.

    Robertson says the man returned later that day in a lime-green raincoat, drew a samurai-style, 3-foot-long sword and got away with an undisclosed amount of narcotics. Towler was arrested later at his home.

    It was unclear Thursday evening if Towler had an attorney.

    Yikes!!

    He might have done better pawning the sword and using the money to 'buy' his "medicine".

    Was he the lost son of John Belushi from SNL ?. His samuri skits were the best.

    We had a series of robberies here last November when some choad dressed as a Ninja and brandishing a sword knocked over several of our little casinos. Story
    They finally caught the guy. Weird.

    At his home? Man, this guy made it too easy. I bet if we ever started a criminal registry, he'd actually sign up for it.
