Police in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, responded to a call on Tuesday night of a reported armed robbery attempt, well . . . sort of.
According to Fox Carolina, police responded to the call around 10 p.m. An employee said he saw the man enter the store and asked if he needed any help. The police report states the man then pulled out his “weapon,” which happened to be only a magazine from a gun. He seemingly forgot his firearm, and told the employee to give him all the money from the pizza place.
When the suspect revealed that his weapon of choice was merely just a harmless magazine, the employee simply slapped it out of the suspect’s hands. Alas, the “armed” robber was disarmed.
Apparently, the suspect grabbed two cartridges that came out of the magazine when it hit the floor, turned around, and walked out the door.
