A Missouri thief got a lot more than he bargained for when he robbed a store.
The store’s clerk, 54-year-old Jon Lewis Alexander, is a former prison guard and a four-tour Iraq war veteran. Not surprisingly, he thwarted the thief without blinking an eye.
Alexander grabbed the thieve’s gun, while simultaneously shoving his own 9mm handgun into the thug’s mouth. No shots were ultimately fired.
The store clerk reportedly said, “One of the policemen told me later, ‘You’re a lucky man.’ I said, ‘I think [the robber] is a little luckier than I am.’”
The perpetrator has not yet been apprehended.
