From Tony Rizzo: A Kansas City man allegedly used a novel ploy to distract the victims he intended to rob.
He enlisted the help of a female accomplice to show her breasts to clerks working at a service station. Then he pulled out what he said was a BB gun and demanded money. The clerks reported than an armed man took $500 in the Nov. 2 robbery in the 3300 block of E. Linwood Boulevard.
On Tuesday night, the same clerks called police when a man they identified as the robber entered the store, according to court records.
According to the court documents, Pearson told detectives that he only got $20 in the robbery, which he said he did because he was homeless and had no money for food.
