Would-be robber picked the wrong drug store. The cashier was fortunate that her boxer friend stopped in for a visit – and that he was specially equipped to handle the situation.
Convenience store robberies are a big problem and a major source of police attention. The last three decades have shown a rise in these types of robberies for a number of reasons. Most stores are placed in locations with easy access. While this is intended to provide quick access for customers, it also provides quick getaway opportunities for robbers.

Drug stores – or pharmacies – are especially vulnerable, as people seek to steal drugs. Whether addicts, dealers or opportunists, robberies at drug stores are on the rise. In the first half of 2015, the Drug Enforcement Agency reported that there was an average of about 76 pharmacy robberies each month in the US.
According to experts, the choice to fight back or cooperate with a robber usually depends upon the situation, if the robber is armed and how able a person is to counter-attack. In this video, this crime-fighter is very able! What do you think?
While this thief was stopped, many aren’t. Stealing of all sorts is a big problem in today’s world, and the Bible is very clear that stealing is wrong. In fact, there are over 50 verses in the Bible about stealing. Not all stealing is as clear-cut or blatant as in the case in this video. Borrowing and not returning an item, taking a taste of pre-purchased food (unless offered as a sample) and taking home supplies from work for personal use (unless specifically stated as allowed) all constitute stealing. But, God is clear that taking something that is not yours is sin.
We do not know this thief’s full intention. Luckily, he was stopped before committing his crime. You won’t want to miss the dramatic scene!
