    Clerk Refuses To Be A Victim

    A Bosque County store clerk refused to be a crime victim for a second time in less than a year by shooting at a masked man who tried to rob him Tuesday morning.

    No customers were in the Lake Stop Store at 340 State Highway 22 in Laguna Park at 10:16 a.m. when a man wearing a mask entered, said owner Balbar Deo, who wasn’t at the store at the time of the attempted robbery. The masked man was carrying an unknown weapon under his jacket, according to a Bosque County Sheriff’s Department press release. When the clerk saw this, he reached under the counter and pulled out a .22-caliber gun and shot twice at the would-be robber.

    The store clerk, in his mid-30s, left early because he wasn’t feeling well, Deo said Tuesday afternoon.

    Deo said the clerk had been robbed and badly beaten at the store last summer.

    But Tuesday, the would-be robber fled the store after the clerk fired. The man drove away in a silver vehicle, according to the sheriff’s department.

    A vehicle matching that description was stopped later that day by deputies in Hill County.

    Officers arrested Stafford L. Jones, of Waco, in the case. Jones, 28, confessed to the attempted robbery and told deputies he had been grazed by the clerk’s bullets, the release stated. He was treated at Goodall-Witcher Hospital in Clifton, then booked into the Bosque County Jail on a robbery charge, the release stated. His bond had not been set late Tuesday, officials said.

    Deo said he plans to install a glass barrier around the cashier’s desk for future protection.
    Not sure a .22 is the smartest caliber choice, but it definitely beats no gun at all. Good for him.

    A .22 is deffinately not the best weapon of choice. But atleast he was able to stop the robery. Deffinately good for him.

    It only took a 'one time' robbery and beating to learn about the value of a CCW...
    This clerk is a 'fast learner' he needs to learn the importance of a larger caliber.

    Glad he is OK...

    This just in...
