Teens Steal from C-Store as Clerk Suffers Medical Emergency

In Washington, two teenage boys who stole from a convenience store after watching the clerk collapse have been identified, according to Auburn Police. The incident happened around 5:40 p.m. Saturday at a Shell gas station. Police say the clerk and teens got into an argument over payment for pepperoni sticks. That’s when the clerk suffered a medical emergency and collapsed in the store. Instead of calling for help, one of the boys retrieves his dollar bill from the passed out clerk.

He proceeds to jump behind the counter and steal as the man and other boy leave the store. Surveillance video then captures both teens returning to steal from the store, eventually breaking into the cash register and stealing the money inside, while the clerk remains on the floor. Then the teens ran out for the last time. About three minutes later, police say another person entered the store and saw the clerk, and immediately called for help. Police say the clerk is alive, but in critical condition.   [Source: King5 News]
