Robbery Suspect Dares Clerk to Call Cops, Gets K-9 Greeting
Either he was daring the clerk, or just didn't care.
Pasco Police said Monday that a suspect who was arrested Saturday evening after a convenience store robbery told (or dared) him to call the cops. He did.
Authorities say 27-year-old Oscar Armando Vargas entered the Circle K store on Argent near Columbia Basin College around 8:15PM that evening.
Vargas allegedly threatened the clerk with a broken bottle, stole a couple of bottles of Modelo, and strolled out. As he was leaving, he reportedly told the clerk to call Police.
Vargas was located in a nearby vacant field and was told to follow commands. But he kept walking and refused. Pasco Police then warned him K-9 Brit would be turned loose if he didn't stop.
He didn't and Brit went in and did the rest. Vargas was quickly persuaded to give up but only after Brit inflicted a number of non-life-threatening wounds to his arm.
Vargas was treated at a nearby hospital then taken to the Franklin County jail where he's facing 2nd Degree Robbery charges. Probably not a big fan of dogs now, either.
