Unidentified Coffe Robber and his accomplice

The most casual robber in the world and his barefaced accomplice seem to have entered a newspaper store in Manchester, England, armed with nothing but a cup of coffee and a positive attitude, and asked the clerk to fill a trash bag with cigarettes and tobacco. No word on how hot orĀ strong the coffee was, but none-the-less, the clerk seems to have felt he had no choice but to comply with the bandits’ demands. In all, he filled four garbage bags for his assailants before they went on their way. Police have released a surveillance still of the robbers (pictured) and asked anyone who knows their identities to contact police.
