The Bar of Soap Robbery

This won't be helping the advertising.

"Armored car guard robbed after pickup

An armored car guard was assaulted and robbed yesterday after he picked up money from a Market Basket in Lowell. The guard was walking out of the store in Endicott Plaza about 9:52 a.m. when a man attacked him and stole the bag of money. By the time police arrived the suspect had fled. The money was not recovered. Though the suspect did not show a weapon, he kept his hand in his pocket, which indicated that he may have had a weapon, police said in a press release. The guard was taken to Beverly Hospital (Boston Globe)."

C'mon, man! That's the oldest one in the book!
