7-Eleven Robber Busted When He Gives the Clerk a Note With His Name On It

On Wednesday, 36-year-old Bruce Manlove of Dover, Delaware walked into a 7-Eleven and handed the clerk a note that said "This is a robbery." His demand? Seventeen packs of Newport cigarettes.

The clerk gave him the cigarettes but refused to give back the note. And when the police got there, they found out why. Turns out the clerk realized that Bruce had written the note on . . . the back of his Department of Corrections paperwork.

So the note featured Bruce's full name, address, and contact information. The police quickly tracked him down and arrested him.
