Armed robbers escape with 15p
Armed robbers staged a raid on a fast food restaurant - and escaped with a charity piggy bank containing just 15p.
Wearing masks to cover their faces, the bungling duo also escaped with two bars of chocolate from the burger bar.
Police in the German city of Dusseldorf said the pair ran away when they set off an alarm as they tried to open a till before grabbing what they could.
Relieved shopkeeper Mehdi Eghbali told German newspaper Bild that the robbers failed to get their hands on any large amounts of loot.
"There was 20 cents (15p) in the piggy bank and the chocolate bars cost 1.20 euros (97p) each," he confirmed.
Police spokesman Andre Hartwich said the unprofessional nature of the heist suggested the robbers were inexperienced.
"We don't believe we're looking for professionals," he said. "But nevertheless it was a serious offence."

every body has to start at the bottom.LOL
I think it is a reflection on the global economic recession even though so many millions of people seem to be extremely wealthy and buy new cars every year.

Sounds like crooks everywhere - most of them aren't exactly the brightest people on earth.
Careful that the so called muja prophet more*ham*head does not get upset with the picture of a pig.
