The Big Apple convenience store in West Paris, Maine was the location of a stick-up that went south for the would-be robber after the clerk didn’t buy that she had a gun.
As reported by the Sun Journal, Paige Tuttle, 26, was arrested Friday on a felony robbery charge after the clerk told the Oxford County Sheriff’s Office she had threatened to shoot him if he didn’t give her the cash from the till.
The clerk told officers he noticed Tuttle had made up her finger in the shape of a gun and stuck it under her sweater before the demand, so after she told him, “I have a gun,” he replied, “No, you don’t,” which resulted in her cursing and leaving the scene.
She was later identified from a photo lineup and arrested once a warrant was issued.
