NEWS OF THE WEIRD

By Chuck Sheppard

Compelling Explanation: Erick Minto, 49, walked into a convenience store in Wawa, Florida, on Aug. 17, and asked for free food, The Smoking Gun reported. When the clerk refused, Minto allegedly pulled out a knife and pointed it at the worker, uttering a quotable line: “Don’t make me do something stupid for a Snickers bar.” The clerk handed over the candy bar, but Minto left the store without it and later told Pinellas County Sheriff’s officer that he was “attempting to trade the knife for a Snickers bar.” He was charged with armed robbery.
