York County police officers arrested a 25-year-old man for attempting to rob a Sharon Kwik Stop gas station convenience store at 5:45pm on May 30th. He came into the store wearing a mask, wig, hoodie, sweatshirt, and a spray-painted NES zapper tucked into the waistband of his pants.
After flashing the NES Zapper, he demanded money from the cash register and approximately $300 USD was taken from the clerk working that evening. Police officers found the suspect in the parking lot of a Dollar General down the street with the NES accessory still tucked away in his pants. He was promptly arrested and then booked into the York County Detention Center. There’s still no word yet on if it still can be used to play Duck Hunt, Wild Gunman, and Hogan’s Alley.
