Priceless! Armed Robber Gets Locked Inside Store… Then Begs Employee To Let Him Out (Video)
Authorities in Houston, Texas have just released surveillance video showing an employee of a cell phone store lock a man attempting to rob the store inside until police arrive. After being locked in, the man tries to shoot out the lock on the door before dropping to his knees and begging to be let out.
The crime occurred on April 17, 2017. The video has just now been released because the suspect, John Bell, pleaded guilty to the crime and was sentenced to 5 years in prison a week before Christmas.
What began as a typical robbery took a hilarious turn for the worse for a criminal in Houston.
Back on April 17, 2017, John Bell casually strolled into a Latino Cell in southwest Houston and then walked around the counter and demanded money.
When one of the employees refused, he again demanded money, but she again refused.
The quick thinking employee then rushed herself, another employee and a customer pushing a stroller out of the store and locked the door.
Bell then attempted to exit the store, but realized he was locked in with no way of unlocking the door from the inside.
After pacing back and forth for a couple of seconds, Bell pulled out a gun and shot the lock four times, but wasn’t able to break it. After that, he kicked the door and then took a couple of runs at it and tried to smash through, but to no avail. That’s when reality set in and he realized he was going to jail.
