The owner told the Mansfield News Journal that the aspiring robbers said to his mother, “We know you have $20.” Authorities don’t know whether they had a weapon or not, but they did accept the offer of baked goods and left the store.
The suspects are two young women who were driving a black pickup truck and carrying an umbrella. Police may know who they are, but haven’t made any arrests yet. The crime may or may not be related to a related incident last week where the mother’s purse was stolen out of her car while she worked in the shop.
