From the headline, it sounds outrageous!
But once you know “the rest of the story”, felony charge and 5 years for a serial petty criminal PITA sounds like a good plan.
Now he’ll get “3 hots and a cot.”
They kidnapped one of the drivers and forced her to let them in the door. Since the driver had no access to the counting room except a mailslot-sized deposit drawer, they couldn't get to the cash. They stole the warehouse forklift and crashed it into the armored door, but it wouldn't make a dent. They decided they'd bash in the wall from the outside, but got the forklift stuck in the yard.
Utterly defeated, they stole the only thing they could get their hands on - a few cases of Twinkies.
They weren't caught, but I've had this scene running in my head ever since: New convict, first day in the yard, and someone asks "So, what are you in for?"
