Cops: Robber Didn’t Learn His Lesson The First Time
CHARLEROI, Pa. (AP/KDKA) – Police say a southwestern Pennsylvania man who didn’t succeed in robbing a liquor store in 2004 should have thought twice about trying again to rob the same store earlier this month.
Online court records don’t list an attorney for 48-year-old Richard Heinzelman, of Monongahela, who is jailed on charges he robbed the same Charleroi state store he spent two to four years in prison for robbing nearly nine years ago.
The Observer-Reporter says Heinzelman was one of two men who robbed the store in November 2004, when his partner in crime swung a bottle of Jack Daniels at a clerk.
On Friday, police say Heinzelman swung a bottle of wine at a clerk before stealing an undisclosed amount of money.
Police say one of the store clerks recognized Heinzelman from the earlier heist.
