Police in Casper say a hotel clerk used a gun she kept in her lunch box to foil a robbery attempt. Two masked men entered the Quality Inn on Poplar Street before 1 a.m. on Friday and announced they were staging a robbery. The two men ran from the building after the female clerk pulled out her handgun. A spokeswoman for the Casper Police Department says the two remain at large. The Casper robbery attempt came three days after a pair of men with bandannas over their faces robbed a hotel in Laramie. The men in that case made off with an undisclosed amount of cash and have not been captured. Police are investigating whether the two cases are connected. (The Sunday Ranger, Casper, WY, 1/6/13)

February 1975: Freelance news photographer Abel Guy was driving to a market in Westminister, Calif., when he heard over his car radio that a robbery was in process at the market. As he drove up to the market, a youth carrying a .30-30 rifle and a paper bag dashed past him. Grasping a .38 revolver, Guy jumped out of his car and ordered the youth to halt and drop the rifle and the bag. The robber dropped the bag but swung around and pointed the rifle at Guy. Eventually he obeyed Guy's repeated orders to drop the rifle and surrendered. (The Register, Orange County, CA)
