Give me your phone number -- or your wallet

I always thought that one of the first things they taught in criminal school was that you shouldn't try to date your victims. Apparently, I was wrong.

Two men robbed a U-Haul store around 3 p.m. Sunday, taking an unspecified amount of cash, according the store's owner. But instead of fleeing, one man lingered and tried to strike up a conversation with the woman he had just robbed.

"He stuck around and was trying to get the female employee's number," U-Haul general manager Patrick Sobocinski said. "She said he was just saying, 'Hey baby, you're pretty fine.'"

Then again, someone who uses "Hey baby, you're pretty fine" as their pick-up line is not likely to be the sharpest tool in the box.
