Armed Wireless Shop Owner Sends Aspiring Robber On His Way

posted on July 14, 2017

“He had that look on his face. I told my employee to be prepared if something was going to happen.”

KSNV-TV in Las Vegas reports that Miguel Gonzalez, owner of the Wireless Clinic store, sensed something was wrong when a suspicious man returned to his store after just visiting a short time earlier. Sure enough, moments later the man kicked in a glass shop counter and began grabbing merchandise—all caught on the store’s surveillance camera.

Gonzalez, however, had prepared for the worst. He raised his gun and challenged the crook, and the would-be bandit stopped dead in his tracks, raised his hands, then slowly walked out of the store. And he also walked away with nothing. Gonzalez told reporters he never even had his finger on the trigger, and hopes he never has to face another robber, concluding, “I love what I do. I’m not going to stop.”
