Footage from surveillance cameras from two businesses located near each other show a man who tied to rob both of them came up empty handed. The suspect, a Hispanic man in his twenties, first walked into a convenience store and demanded money. He was holding a potato disguised as a gun. The thief fled when the manager grabbed a baseball bat and chased him. A few minutes later, the same man entered a nearby dry cleaning business and demanded money, while waving the potato. The clerk gave the man a counterfeit $20 bill from a decoy register and the then the man left. Police have not made an arrest in the case, and are not sure what will happen because the thief did not get anything, and technically a potato is not considered a deadly weapon.—Jim L.
