    No gun, no robbery

    ASSOCIATED PRESS November 30, 2008

    TAMPA -- A Florida man suspected of armed robbery apparently forgot that the key to a successful armed robbery is hanging on to the gun.

    Police say 42-year-old Jerome Haggins, armed with a pistol, entered a Tampa home Saturday night, ordered six men to the ground and demanded they give up their wallets and jewelry.

    He then forced them to take off their clothes and noticed that one of the men had not given up his bracelet.

    Police say Haggins put his pistol on a table, walked over to the man and snatched the bracelet.

    But while Haggins was taking the bracelet, police say another victim grabbed the gun and pointed it at Haggins.

    The would-be victims held Haggins until police arrived.

    Haggins faces multiple charges, including armed robbery. He was being held without bail set.
    Naked and BG lays down his weapon. Guess that's what he gets for being greedy.

    Ah, NFL Saturday night football, Sunday night's less well-known brother.
    That must be the reason

    You would think with his guy's record, he would know to hold on to the gun. 25 charges, all made up of either stealing, possessing, or robbing w/ a gun. Would have been best to just pop this guy, we can see where this is going.

    Nice to see our victims were paying attention and took advantage when the opportunity presented itself.

    Kudos to the arresting officer! If you look at the charge sheet notice how this guy looks like he has been charged with posession of each individual cartridge that was in the weapon! Most of that will probably get tossed in the plea bargain but I like that kind of attention to detail! If there is a mandatory sentence there for a felon being in posession of ammo, that could put him away for longer than the robbery itself!

    What an idiot!! I'm surprised he didn't ask one of the victims to hold the gun while he got the guys bracelet. What ever happened to the 3 strike laws? This guy needs to be put away somewhere that he can't hurt himself.
