Gullible robbers arrested after retailer tells them to return later

A Belgian store owner foiled an armed robbery on Saturday by telling the would-be thieves to return later when there would be more money in the till.

The gang duly complied — only to be arrested by waiting police officers, broadcaster RTL reported on Tuesday.

“I told them they’d be better off robbing me at half past six,” Charleroi e-cigarette seller Didier told the channel. “I could see I wasn’t dealing with geniuses.”
