Two alleged robbers were left high and dry Thursday when a Burger King employee hid their getaway car, Fox 40 reported.
Police in Stockton, Calif., say Jeremy Lovitt, 23, and Gabriel Gonzales, 19, held up the fast food restaurant at gunpoint at about 9:45 p.m.
While the manager and another employee handed over the money, a third employee says he exited the restaurant through the back and noticed that there was a car with the engine running in the parking lot, according to News 10/KXTV.
Do you want to know what is a pretty decent litmus test for your intelligence? Just ask yourself ….have I ever in my life been outsmarted by the Burger King cashier in a battle of wits? If the answer is “yes”….then you are officially on the second to last rung of the intelligence ladder. We are going to leave the bottom rung open to interpretation….but mostly it is just reserved for the people of rural Florida.
First off all…we all know robbing Burger King is dumb. Anyone with half a brain knows McDonald’s is where REAL the money is at. Even better….a late night Taco Bell around 2 am. The amount of money pumped into a late night Taco Bell between 11pm and 3am is mind boggling. Between the late night stoners and the drunk people you are sitting on some Tony Stark type money. But NO…..they went for the King’s money.
I am guessing they were itching for their next fix and were tired of blowing guys in back alleys. I mean that is the only reason I can think of for trying to rob a fast food joint. In all honesty….they do cash drops into a very large safe. Each register has $100-$200 at the most. We all know these geniuses aren’t cracking any backroom safes….so it is safe to assume they maybe got their hands on $400. What makes you take the chance of going to jail for $400?? Drugs….or complete and utter stupidity. In this case….I would make a solid assumption that both were playing an integral part in these young men’s decision making.
Outsmarted by a Burger King employee….ouch….that’s gonna sting awhile…..or at least until you get your mind cleared by some prison rape. Happy showers gentlemen.
