Would-be robber leaves payoff

FORT WORTH, Texas, Aug. 10 (UPI) -- A would-be robber forgot to take his payoff from a coin-operated machine he crashed into in Fort Worth, Texas, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram says.

The newspaper said Sunday that the unidentified suspect in the incident crashed a truck into the machine at a Fort Worth gas station, managing to knock the machine's collection box free. Yet the apparent would-be thief simply fled the scene without taking the booty.

The Aug. 2 incident marked the second time such a botched theft occurred at the Fort Worth station this year, the Telegram said.

The newspaper said a few weeks ago, the station's car wash was targeted by a would-be robber who again left behind a collection box full of coins after it was broken free.
