‘YOU have to give the robber some credit, if not for his choice of target then at least for his clever thinking.

The man called a branch of KFC in Pittsburgh pretending to be a policeman and warning of a robbery, advising the manager to instruct his staff to co-operate and allow the police to make the arrest.

The robber duly showed up a few minutes later, just as the caller said, and the manager and staff handed over the money as expected, but of course the police never arrived.

The robber, who was armed with a long-barrelled black gun and is believed to be responsible for at least five other robberies in the same area, made off with about $200.’
