These ladies were obviously having a bad night.
Robbers thought they had it in the bag
Give you the money? Oh, really?

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Two trashy would-be robbers make the highlight real of dumb Albuquerque criminals in action.
The crime involves a Dunkin Donuts, two trash bags and couple of serious and now-wanted amateurs.
The owner of the donut shop on Central Avenue SE across from the University of New Mexico said two women came in about 4:30 a.m. on June 6, ordered some donuts and then asked a favor.
“They borrowed the counter person’s phone to call a cab,” store owner Greg Beliveau told KRQE News 13. “They hung around a little more.”
The owner says the two then left but came back a few minutes later. This time, though, they are in disguise, sort of, after donning trash bags and weren’t interested in more donuts.
“They said give me all the money, and the counter person said, ‘Oh, really?’” Beliveau said.
When the counter person went to chase them out of the store, they ran out the door, got into the cab and drove away.
The pair not been seen since although the Albuquerque Police Department Armed Robbery Unit is trying to bag them for attempted armed robbery.
“This is tops on the list of strange things,” Beliveau said. “We’re calling them the White Trash Bandits. Not very smart. Not very smart at all.”
The two robbers didn’t get far in the cab they called. The cabbie kicked them out down the street because they didn’t have any money.
