St. Louis Machete Thief Doesn’t Get Far

The plan was perfect. Right at midnight, grab the machete, run in to the 7-Eleven, get the cash and jump back in the van. The machete was a really nice touch and will allow a lot of other sites to use stills from that movie of the same name as all-too-obvious graphic, but too bad the clerk saw your get away vehicle!

[T]he clerk saw him get into a large white van, which drove away, police said. Officers spotted the vehicle a short time later, arrested two men and found a machete inside the van.

You know your attempt at crime sucks when the story on KSDK’s header graphic is taller than the full description of your lame step towards criminal mastery.
