How NOT To Get Past Fry's Receipt Checkers

The last line of defense against armed robbery at Fry’s: receipt checks. Three men loaded up carts with merchandise at a San Diego store, and just headed for the door.

When they were stopped near the exit by a checker who asked for their receipts, two of the men allegedly pulled out handguns. All three then walked out of the store, stepped into a vehicle and sped away.

Look, we’re not exactly fans of mandatory receipt checks around here, but arming yourself is taking things a little far.
