When you bring a change of clothes with you to an armed robbery, that’s called thinking ahead. when you bring a Pokemon backpack with you to an armed robbery, that’s called dumb. And weird. Definitely weird. Like seriously, you’re a grown-up, man. What the shit?
Funzail Woods was arrested after using an ax as a weapon at the Target store on Piedmont Road in Buckhead, according to police. Investigators said the man walked over to the electronics section
“Where he took a cell phone out of a package and proceeded to put it in his pocket. When he was approached by the manager, he actually presented an ax. The manager, of course, backed off,” said Officer Lisa Bender, Atlanta Police Department.
Woods then ran out the store. The 911 alert went out to Zone 2 officers. By then, Woods had changed his shirt.
“But he didn’t change his backpack. So, I think that’s what got him,” said Officer Bender. “The man took off running when he saw police. And he did have a Pokémon backpack, so those are normally a bright color and typically easy to spot.”
