Raymond Cuthbert walked into Nolan's Pharmacy in Vernon, BC, on Thursday evening and boasted that he was returning in half an hour to rob them.

True enough, about 30 minutes later, he returned with Robert Phimister carrying a concealed hunting knife... into the waiting hands of the Mounties! whom the drug store employees had called after his boast.

Mountie Hugh Menzies said, "I don't know why he did it; he's well known to the local police."
