checks-cashed.jpgIn many facets of life, that’s a great motto — start with what you know. When you want to rob a place though, not so much. That’s what Alvin Gist learned when he decided to rob a check cashing story in Louisville, Kentucky. A check cashing store where he often did business. And because he did business there, unsurprisingly, the clerk recognized him when he came in to rob the joint. So when he left, she looked up his account info and called the cops, who were easily able to track him down.
