The “Duct Tape Bandit” brings out all the cliches, i.e.; crime doesn’t pay, world’s dumbest criminal, and so on. But I think the the Liquor Store Robbery Poster Child is a fine example for those looking for a career in liquor store robbery.
For good measure, employees at Shamrock Liquors in Ashland pinned this guy to the asphalt outside during his robbery attempt. Police arrived shortly afterward.
Store manager Bill Steele had some duct tape of his own, but his was wrapped around a wooden club that sent the robber fleeing, according to a report by WSAZ-TV in Huntington, W.Va.
