Thwarted Crime Alert

Criminals of the Hamptons are apparently a bit frustrated with their doubtful targets. A man who tried to hold-up the convenience store at a Hamptons Bays gas station was asked if he was serious by the store's owner, at gunpoint. The potential thief 'became irritated' by the question and left with no money, proving that a healthy sense of skepticism can save lives. [SH Press]
