Armed robber steals money and porn movies

Police are hunting for a man who robed an adult bookstore, stealing $140 (103 EUR) in cash and locking the clerk in the bathroom before also escaping with $22,000 (16,336 EUR) worth of pornographic movies.

Authorities said the unidentified man walked into the store on Wednesday night and browsed for several minutes. He then asked the clerk for help, pulled out a large semiautomatic handgun and demanded money from the register, Pontiac police Sgt. William Ware said.

The robber took $140 and locked the clerk in the bathroom, Ware said. He said the store employee emerged after several minutes and noticed that several cases of adult movies also were missing.

"It's possible the man may try to sell the stolen movies," Ware told The Oakland Press.

Fantasies Unlimited store manager Tim Merriwether said Friday that this was the first time the store had been robbed since it opened in Pontiac, a suburb north of Detroit.

Ware and Merriwether said they do not think the robber was a regular customer at the store.

The man, who can be seen on a surveillance tape, grabbed four cases holding about 800 movies, while leaving behind about seven other cases, the manager said. He said there was no apparent pattern in what the robber stole and what he left behind.

"Apparently, he took all that he could grab," Merriwether said.
