Man holds up store with gun photo

A British man tried to hold up a supermarket with a photo of a gun.


Cops were called to the Bar Hill Tesco superstore in Cambridge, England on November 12 after staff reported a man had threatened to kill staff while brandishing not a weapon, but a photograph of a gun.

Cambridgeshire police sent officers to the store where they arrested a man on suspicion of making threats to kill.

A police spokesperson said:

“A 34-year-old man from Cambridge was arrested on November 12 on suspicion of making threats to kill. He was released on police bail to return to Parkside police station in Cambridge on January 14, 2015.”

In Britain gun ownership is much more harsh than in America, so The Freaky can only presume that the man was unable to acquire a real gun and resorted to using a photograph instead.

  1. Don’t laugh, if held correctly a photograph can give someone a very nasty paper cut.
