She Got a Handle on It (start your Friday with a smile!)

On the same day that Lem over at Hillbilly White Trash posted the story about the Arizona jr. high school kid who run off an intruder with the only available weapon to him-a metal baseball bat- we have a similar incident happen right 'chere in my neck of the woods...and we have video!

Some peckerwood has been going about nightly for almost a week up in Springfield knocking off gas stations and convenience stores. The usual M.O.-says he's got a gun, blah, blah, blah. And of course, the employees believe him and comply with handing over what little cash might be in the till. Until the other night. I reckon this gal had been around the block a few times and knew that chances were the "gun" the moron quickly flashes was either fake or not loaded. She was making good use of a slow time during her shift and sweeping up behind the counter when this id'jet walks in and well, let's go to the video tape as they say...

This morning it's being reported that they do finally have a suspect in custody.
The huge bruise around his neck made i.d. easy, I guess.

From the KY3 website:

"SPRINGFIELD – For the second night in a row, a bandit on a spree hit two more convenience stores on Wednesday. At one of the stores, he met someone who was his match: a fed-up store clerk who had a handle on the situation.

Police think the man has robbed or tried to rob eight stores since Jan. 8. At the Express Lane at 2744 E. Chestnut Expressway, the persistent robber didn't get away with anything except a nice bruise. That's because a brave clerk made it clear she wasn't going to have it in her store! She hit him with a broomstick and chased him out of the store."
