Oh mammy, this *wipes tears from cheeks* must be my favourite news story of the year. Lou Robson reports:
‘A THIEF crossed to the dark side when he donned a Darth Vader mask and robbed two Sunshine Coast service stations.
Police said the man, armed with a plastic toy gun, entered the Mobil service station on Noosa Drive at 12.30am on Friday and threatened a male attendant.
But the thief was unable to open the till and left empty handed.
A police spokesman said the Star Wars fan returned nearly three hours later and scanned a packet of chewing gum in order to open the cash register.’
