Potato Bandit Foiled

(WJAR)  Police in Providence, Rhode Island say a man carrying a potato tried to rob two businesses Monday.

"He said, 'I need the money, money.' I said, 'Take it easy. I give you the money. Don't worry,'" Anna Jung said.

Jung said she was robbed at her family's dry cleaning business by a man wielding a potato.

"He said, 'Don't call 911.' I said, 'OK. Take it easy,'" Jung said.

The only thing in the register was a counterfeit $20 bill.

The man wasn't happy with the amount, but he eventually left, taking the potato with him.
