Police in New Mexico said a would-be robber was stopped by a female clerk armed with a loaf of bread and a box of pastries.

Deming police said a masked man who did not display a weapon tried to run off after snatching the cash register from the Amigo’s store at about 3 p.m. Wednesday and soon found himself on the receiving end of a thrown loaf of bread and a box of empanada, TheDeming Headlight reported Tuesday.

The robber dropped the register and fled in a gray or primer-colored car with several other people, police said.

The would-be robber was foiled by a female clerk armed with a loaf of bread and a box of pastries. The hapless criminal was left with egg, err, pastries on his face.


The clerk was more foolhardy than courageous, she’s lucky she wasn’t hurt or killed. The cops recommended that you surrender the money, when confronted by a robber who could be armed.


Amigo’s owner Arnold Orquiz gave his clerk a $20 bill, he should have thrown in box of pastries for good measure.
