    Clerk foils robbery by laughing at crook's Pluto dog mask

    A convenience store clerk in Cranberry foiled an armed robbery last night when he burst into laughter after a man wearing a Pluto-the-dog mask pulled out what looked like a gun and demanded money.

    Cranberry police Sgt. Dave Kovach said the masked robber entered Gordon's Mini Market on Rochester Road at 9:45 p.m., shortly before closing time.

    The robber walked up to the counter, pulled out what appeared to be a black, semi-automatic weapon and demanded money from the register.

    That's when the clerk, who was alone in the store, started laughing.

    "He didn't comply with the request and the frustrated Pluto robber then left the store," Kovach said.

    Kovach wants to make clear the clerk's response, while understandable, is not recommended.

    "I don't want to give the impression that that's an advisable thing to do," he said. "Pluto could have been a strung-out heroin addict. You never know."

    That silly robber, he should have picked a likeness of a former president like Nixon.
    This is my opinion, and change is good.
