Misty McDivitt, 22, of the 100 block of Howland St., walked into the Croghan Carryout Thursday morning holding a note that said: “This is a robbery ... Give me the money in the register and nobody will get hurt. I do have a weapon please don’t make me use it,” according to the report.

The store owner, Michael Waggoner, 50, had a different plan.

“Yeah right,” he said. “You’re on camera.”

He later told police he proceeded to press the holdup alarm, and he also pulled out a handgun. McDivitt promptly left the Croghan Street business and walked down to the railroad tracks, the report said.

Waggoner followed her and saw her run around a garage and head to a Monroe Street house. McDivitt answered the door when Fremont police knocked, the report said.

She denied being at the carryout, but Waggoner identified her, and also provided the security video to show police.

McDivitt eventually admitted she had walked to the carryout with the note to try to rob the store. She said she uses heroin and needed the money, the report said.

She is charged with a single count of robbery. Her next court appearance is set for Tuesday.

Another worthless druggie what a d-bag.

It's not her fault, she was doomed at birth when her mom gave her a stripper name.

Just think, she could have gotten a good paying job at the THouse. Too bad!

She is way too skinny for the Tea House.

Way to go Spanky, now maybe the cops will also address the drug dealing across the street from your business. Wonder who the slum lord/s is/are who owns those homes?
