    Aussie bandits make getaway from gas station robbery with bags of garbage

    Canadian Press Thursday, July 17, 2003

    MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) - In a rushed grab-and-run robbery, two men with a sawed-off shotgun stole two bags of garbage from a gasoline station attendant in the southern Australian city Melbourne, police said Friday.

    The male attendant was carrying the garbage through a shopping centre parking lot in the city's western suburb Deer Park just before midnight Thursday when a green van reversed toward him, police said.

    A man, who had covered his face with a piece of yellow cloth, slid the van's side door open, produced a sawed-off shotgun and demanded the attendant hand over the bags.

    "He told them it was only rubbish but they took it anyway," police spokeswoman Bronwen Kelly said.

    The van then sped off.

    Police said they have no idea why the men grabbed the trash but assumed they thought the bags contained money. Police believe the van was stolen and are treating the case as a normal armed robbery.

    OK, if this is a "normal armed robbery", what constitutes an abnormal armed robbery?
