Robbers Return to Crime Scene as Requested by Restaurant Owner

by Kelly Meyer

There's a bizarre story out of Chicago.  The Chicago Tribune reports Mario Garcia and Domingo Garcia-Hernandez allegedly entered a restaurant, demanding food while claiming to have a gun.  The owner of the restaurant, who said he was concerned about the safety of his customers, asked the two guys to come back in an hour.  The guys left and the owner called police, who simply came to the restaurant and waited for the robbers to return.  Sure enough, the two returned and were promptly arrested.  These two rocket scientists are now facing charges.  Oh, and for good measure, the gun turned out to be a squirt gun.
