‘LACHRYMOSE larcenist Edward Hardy burst into tears when a shopkeeper told him to get lost as he was trying to rob the shop.

Hardy had pointed a gun at the 60-year-old grocer and demanded the money from the till, but when Stan Tilotson refused he started sobbing and ran out of the shop. ”My heart sank when he refused,” he later told police.

Sentencing Hardy to 19 months in jail, a judge said: ”Never was there a more unlikely robber.”’
