Sometimes robbers have to be creative

The crooks should get a high mark for improvisation.

The Fuerza Pública detained two men in downtown San José Monday after a woman reported she had been robbed.

Instead of a gun or a knife, officers said they found the nozzle of a garden hose. The robbery took place on Avenida 5 between calles 7 and 9. The two suspects were detained a few blocks to the east a short time later.

Police said that the men carried several cell telephones and the nozzle of a hose.nozzle082615
