Slap-sticky robber tosses 'gun' over counter, makes clumsy getaway (VIDEO)

Colorado Police are searching for a man who tried and spectacularly failed to rob an area business this week.

The Aurora Police Department said the unidentified man captured in the above surveillance video attempted to hold up the E-Cig of Denver on S. Havana St. on Sunday.

“This would be robber attempted to pull a replica handgun from his pants but sends it flying over the counter instead,” said APD in a statement. “The BB gun, with the orange tip removed, fell onto the floor where the clerk grabs it. The suspect quickly changes his mind and runs out of the business, fortunately leaving no one injured.”

The suspect is described as a white male wearing a red hat, a blue Denver Broncos sweatshirt with an orange “D” on the front, black pants, sunglasses, orange gloves, and white shoes.

“We are grateful that our employee was not harmed in this attempted stick up the other day. However, he is one dumb criminal,” said the store on social media.
