Man robs Seven-Eleven store, and steals employees' cell phone batteries

11 Comments

A man armed with a knife entered a Seven-Eleven convenience store in Nagoya early Sunday morning, thrusting the weapon at a male employee and demanding money.

The thief made off with 50,000 yen from the cash register, along with the mobile phone batteries he forced the two employees to remove from their phones. "I think he meant to stop them from calling us, but they just called from the store's land line instead," commented a police officer.

Police say the suspect is about 180 cm tall, was wearing a navy blue jacket, and spoke broken Japanese.

He should have also stolen all of the cell phone charger battery packs in the store too so that they really would not be able to call.

I see Japan is not screening out the "dumb criminals" at the borders like they should.

Alphaape: He should have also stolen all of the cell phone charger battery packs in the store too so that they really would not be able to call.

Without the battery I don't think the circuit would be completed. What he should have done was cut the phone line and maybe the line to the pay phone as well if there is one. But I am surprised he did not just tie up and gag the employees.

But still, nice of him to just steal the batteries, ummm, in a way. Batteries are not cheap, but this way they keep their data.

seeing as he spoke "broken Japanese" he is likely a foreigner, which means that he won't turn himself into the koban, nor confess if caught, which means this dude is scott free.
