Empanada toss ends would-be robbery: Report
A would-be New Mexico store robber was foiled by a clerk who threw a package of empanadas at him, according to this report:
Arnold Orquiz of Amigo's says it was a package of empanadas that saved the day, along with the aim of a loyal, longtime employee.
"She was behind the counter," Orquiz said of the woman. "He didn't see her, and he went for the register and got the whole damn thing. The cord got caught.
"She saw him, and screamed and grabbed a package of empanadas. She was really brave."
