It’s too bad this doesn’t have audio, I bet it would have been interesting:
The cashier definitely kept his cool. Must not have been the first time something like that happened to him.
Info from the YouTube Video:
On Dec 9th, 2009 a suspect enters a San Dimas convenient market and portraits himself as a regular customer. He purchases a couple items so that the clerk would open the cash register drawer. The suspect then removes a stainless steal semi-auto handgun from his left front pants pocket. Covertly and calmly the clerk hits their silent armed robbery alarm button.
According to a law enforcement contact there are two different versions to this story. Since we were not able to confirm either, we will not publish them. However an LASD Deputy does walk in. What she doesnt see is the customers left hand. While the suspect still holds the gun, and is only about 12 feet from the deputy, he looks right into her eyes. But instead of shooting her, he decides to slip his gun back into his pocket and casually walk out.
A police contact told me that after the customer was arrested, he stated the only reason why he didnt kill the cop, was because she was a lady. convenience
