Thieves tear cash register from Northeast Wawa

    Well this is an interesting trend. We reported yeaterday about thieves in Edison, N.J., who stole a couple cash registers from a convenience store when the ATM proved too formidable an opponent.

    Some local thieves took a cue.

    Three suspects entered a Wawa in the Northeast early this morning, demanded money and then ripped out a cash register. According to a report from CBS3, two Good Samaritans and a police officer pursued the suspects, and were able to catch one and recover the register.

     

    Seems like a cash register would make for a cumbersome getaway.
