THOMASVILLE, N.C. — This was one botched stickup. But at least the thief had minty fresh breath.
A man brandishing a knife stole a pack of gum from a Family Dollar store in North Carolina, but did not get any money because he ran when the employee screamed, the Winston-Salem Journal reported.
When the store employee opened the cash register, the man took out a knife and demanded money, the newspaper reported.
The employee screamed and the thief bolted from the store with the gum, WGHP reported. There were no injuries.
