Las Cruces Crime Stoppers is offering a $1,000 reward for information that helps identify the suspect who stole cash from a Check “N Go store Saturday morning…The robbery occurred at around 9:15 a.m…at the Check “N Go at 400 N. Telshor Blvd, according to a Las Cruces Police new release.

Detectives learned that a man posing as a landscaper walked into the business, demanded money from an employee and left with an undisclosed amount of cash. The suspect was last seen leaving the business and walking south along Telshor Boulevard.

The suspect was described as a man about 6-feet tall with a stocky build. He was wearing what appeared to be a blue jump suit, gloves, a mask and a khaki fisherman’s bucket hat. The suspect was carrying a string trimmer or more commonly referred to as a weed-whacker.

Normally, this would end up being the dumb crook of the day – except for the clerk at this payday lender handing over the loot!

    “Normally, this would end up being the dumb crook of the day – except for the clerk at this payday lender handing over the loot!” /// What do you mean? If I were the clerk, thats what I would have done==even if the company policy was not to. Note: almost all companies have a policy of “give the thief the money AS IN=money can be replaced and not enough of it is at issue or worth a human life.

    So again==what the frick do you mean?

    I don’t know why this item is here at all–a ho hum robbery putting years in jail on balance with paltry sums of money? Most street crime is disproportionately stupid.

    Here, I thought maybe you would class the thief a hero as if “Check and Go” is one of thos Pay Day Loan operations, they are but crooks themselves and in anything other than a predator capitalist country with an “inge” of consumper protection, such thin veils of organized crime would not be allowed to exist.

    …… but you went with minimum wage slaves risking their lives to save their criminal employers a few thousand bucks.

    My error.

      Easy to joke now that the clerk was dumb for handing over the money. What if he hadn’t? A 6-foot guy with a stocky build could have used the weed-whacker as a club and beaten the guy to death.

    Weed-Whackiest crook of the day?

    Had to be said.

    Hand over the cash! Don’t make me get my attachments out!

    I’d have calmly pulled my Glock and ended the stupidity.

    • noname says:

      Sound like the public should be more afraid of your trigger finger then this guys string trimmer!

    He pulls a weed whacker, you pull a leaf blower. That’s the Californian way.

      Ha, ha. Better than my draft alliteration.

      What you guys do in the privacy of your own bedrooms there in the Land of Hot Sex (la tiers de California — calorie + fornicate) is not really my business but, for the love of God, pull something living that will at least give some moaning feedback.

    • Tim says:

      Great. Now I can’t get that tune from The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly out of my head — only it’s set to trying to start poorly-choked lawn implements.

    WE are overdue for yet another antiRepublican post, hence this is meant to document the Republican war on undocumented Americans is driving them to desperate measures.

    Trapped in every landscaper hiding in the shadows, is an American wanting food stamps and other assistance the greedy Republicans have angrily denied them.

    We know this man is a hero of the Revolution, an Obama supporter just waiting to become a poll watcher, by lengths he went to hide his identity from the Republicans facial recognition.

    Thanks to Obama’s access to his meta data and gps, this hero was located deputized by Eric Holder and put in charge of the next fast and furious operation.

      Nope, not paranoid at all. Not in the least.

        • Taxed Enough Already Dude says:

          Clear and incontrovertible Obama’s spying on every American didn’t reveal the terrorist plot hatched by this illegal in the shadows…even though he is wearing designer hat, gloves and man purse.

    I was wondering what George W. Bush is doing these days.

      He’s waiting for this guy to return to work.
