Dumb crook…no, wait. Make that “Dumb cop/crook”

The Australian
A Victorian policeman already suspended from the force allegedly tried to rob a milk bar with a fake gun. Ethical Standards detectives are investigating after the 35-year-old officer was arrested last night in Melbournes east.

Police allege the officer tried to rob a milk bar in Mont Albert North last night with an imitation pistol, entering the shop and demanding cash.

The milk bar owner handed him the till tray before realising the gun was a fake, then hit him over the head with a metal object, police said.

Police arrested the officer, who was taken to hospital with head injuries.
