    Unloaded BB gun foils robbery attempt at Taco John’s
    8:30 AM, Jan 21, 2014 | by Regina Zilbermints | Comments Categories: Crime & Courts

    The BB gun a would-be robber pointed during at attempt to hold up a Des Moines Taco John’s apparently didn’t fool the employee behind the counter.

    And when the man racked the slide and tried firing the gun, nothing happened. The gun wasn’t loaded, authorities said.

    The botched attempt at a robbery occurred around 7:30 p.m. at Taco John’s, 2727 SW Ninth St.

    A man walked into the restaurant when no other customers were inside and approached the counter.

    “Give me everything you got,” he reportedly told an employee while pointing a gun at him.

    The gun was a BB gun with the orange tip painted black, an employee later told police.

    “I don’t have anything for you,” one of the clerks reportedly responded. “And plus, that’s a BB gun.”

    The suspect denied it and racked the slide and fired the gun, police reports show. But the gun apparently wasn’t loaded, authorities said.

    The suspect left the store and fled on foot. No arrests have been reported.
    LOL!

    In the morning rain, smoking gun in hand
    Ten lonely years but how my heart, it still remembers

      I used to eat at Taco John's all the time back when I lived in Tennessee. It was cool.

        Must be exclusive to Clarksville. I've never heard of it before.

          To be honest, Clarksville was the only place I saw it. And that was the 80's.

          They were the best because they had those flat tater tots to go with your tacos.

          Hey Ginger! I do like fusion food, after all!

            Morning's at seven;
            The hill-side's dew-pearled;
            The lark's on the wing;
            The snail's on the thorn:
            God's in his heaven—
            All's right with the world!

              They had Taco Johns in Nebraska where I grew up. I mostly remember the apple grande because that was the first time I ever had cheddar cheese on an apple dessert and it blew my mind.
              Enjoy.

                  If the gun had an orange tip, it was probably an airsoft gun. Not exactly a BB gun, but pretty much the same thing with plastic BB's.
                  Enjoy.

                    They had 'Taco John's' in Denver then but not now.
