Robber told to wait her turn

July 11, 2012 at 3:00 PM

YPSILANTI, Mich., July 11 (UPI) -- A woman attempting to rob an Ypsilanti, Mich., gas station left after she was told by the cashier to wait her turn in line, a police said.

The suspect claimed she had a gun and demanded money at a Speedway station early Monday morning, but "The cashier politely told the suspect 'no' and that she would have to wait her turn because there were other people waiting in line," a Washtenaw County Sheriff's Office statement said.

The suspect then walked around the counter, but fled when told the cashier was phoning the police, the Detroit News reported Wednesday.
