This is the moment an armed robber pretends to be severely disabled as he shuffles into a business looking as if he can barely coordinate his movements before suddenly pulling out a gun.
The incident happened when the crook went into the TitleMax located at 7243 on highway 64 in Memphis, Tennessee, on Monday (12 October).
Police said the footage showing the man pretending to have a severe disability in order to distract the employee enough so that he can get near enough to pull out the gun.
He then demanded the money from the cash register and after getting the cash, fled the scene on foot.
In a statement by local police, they said: “The suspect is described as a black male, 20-25-years-old, 5’08”—5’10”, 150-180 lbs., wearing a gray hoodie, multi-colored mask, dark pants, and black shoes.
“No arrests have been made at this point. This is an ongoing investigation.
“Anyone with information about this incident should call Crime Stoppers at 528-CASH. You will be given a secret ID number and your identification will remain completely anonymous.”
