Shopkeeper fights off armed burglars with chilly powder

UK: Three armed burglars attempted to rob a grocery store in the United Kingdom were served a hot lesson when the shopkeeper behind the counter warded them off with red chilly powder. 

The goons entered Baba Food City convenience store in Luton, UK on Saturday night. Two of the burglar held handguns while the third carried a blade. At the point when the thieves demanded the clerk to open the cashier, it wasn’t money he reached out a box of chilly powder that was kept inside. 

In CCTV footage of the store the man is seen throwing fistfuls of the fatal Indian chilly powder at the equipped goons. The trio eventually left the store empty-handed by the risk of getting chilly powder in their eyes. 

Ganesh Kumar, who has owned the shop for a year, revealed that the chilly powder was kept for self protection after three men escaped with 400 pounds in a past theft. 

Via web-based networking media, the cashier, who did not wish to be identified, was hailed a legend by people. 

In the mean time, police have asked people in general for information on the attempted burglary. 

Investigating Detective Constable Daniel O’Mahoney in a public statement said “This could have been an intense occurrence as the burglars were equipped with a blade and two handguns, yet fortunately they escaped empty handed and no one was harmed,”

While this store collaborator required some mirchi to avert the hooligans, for some only a look is sufficient. A criminal in Florida left with only six dollars worth of candy since he was shaken by the cashier’s exceptional gazing. The suspect, who grabbed some candies and dessert from the store, pointed a handgun at the cashier. However, remaining cool-as-a-cucumber, the clerk just gazed at the suspect for a decent 15 seconds, in the end influencing him to surrender and leave. 

Also, in November a year ago, four ladies, working at a fast food joint, together went up against a burglar when he endeavored to escape with the money register. The main thing he exited with were wounds.
