ST. LOUIS – St. Louis police are searching for a would-be robber whose crime was thwarted when his gun got stuck in his pants.

Police told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that a gunman walked into a Family Dollar store Thursday afternoon and ordered an employee to give him the cash register. The worker said he couldn’t, so the suspect reached for a firearm from the waistband of his jeans.

Problem is, the gun was stuck. Unable to pull out the weapon, the man ran away without getting any money.
