Would-Be Robber Shouldn’t Have Yelled

A Columbus, OH robbery was thwarted last week when the would-be robber raised his voice a little too high, reports MSNBC.com. Keith Sturgill entered a Wendy’s restaurant with a gun and threatened employees and patrons while waiting for the contents of a safe.

When an employee’s phone rang, Sturgill shouted that he would fire his gun at anyone who answered. What he didn’t count on was that the employee’s headset was voice-activated, and was triggered by his aggressively loud voice. The caller overheard the commotion and called the police.

Sturgill surrendered shortly after police circled the restaurant. He was on parole for a rape and robbery in 1993, and is being held in jail.
