Robber Begs To Be Let Out After Worker Locks Him In Cellphone Store

There are a lot of people out there trying to rob people and trying to rob money from stores. The thing is that the majority of those robbers aren’t very bright. And the video below is proof of that.

While the crime in the video occurred in April of last year, video was just released this week that shows suspect John Bell walk into cellphone store Latino Cellular in Houston and demand that clerk Karina Leon open the cash register. The video shows Leon refuse to open the register, and Bell walks into the store’s office. That was Bell’s mistake, as while he is in the office, Leon shows a customer and another worker out of the store, locking the door behind her.

And the video below shows Bell completely panicking when he learns he’s locked in. Bell does everything from shoot at the door, to shaking it, to getting on his knees and begging to be let out. Check out the video below:

Here’s what Leon told KHOU-TV:

“It was in broad daylight. I was cashing out a customer and she had a baby. I think I was handing her her cash, then this guy walks in with a hoodie on. As soon as he went into the office I just immediately got out and got the customer out. I just locked him outside because whenever you lock the door outside, from the inside you can’t open it so I knew he wasn’t going to be able to open it.”

Bell, who Leon said had previously been involved in an armed robbery at the store, pleaded guilty to aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. This idiot got sentenced to five years in prison.
