A garage in Redruth was cordoned off yesterday and after two men had a fight over a snickers bar.
Dom, who works at the garage said “There’s a couple of regular customers, known as – Fat Tony and Jimmy Two Shanks Mc Call. They both entered the shop and I just knew there was going to be trouble! I looked down at the front of the counter and there was only one Snickers bar left. They both picked up the bar and were tugging at each end, then started making weird grunting noises! After about ten seconds they were both out of breath and Fat Tony shouted “It’s mine, I saw it first” Jimmy Two Shanks then looked behind Fat Tony and said “What’s that” of course this was a trick and when Fat Tony turned round, Jimmy yanked the Chocolate bar out his hand. Fat Tony got really angry and shouted “you bastard!” but then Jimmy put the Snickers in his pocket and shouted “I’ve got a gun!”
Dom and Fat Tony were so shaken by the incident, they were confused as to whether he actually had a gun?
Dom continued “Me and Tony put our hands in the air and backed up behind the counter? I thought “I’m sure that’s just the Snickers in his pocket” But I didn’t want to take any chances. Jimmy Two Shanks Mc Call then put a pound on the counter and said “Keep the change, ” and ran out the shop!”
Jimmy was later found at his home watching Eatenders whilst eating a Family Bucket. No further action was taken…
