QUINCY, Mass. -- It's never good to fall asleep on the job, but when you're a robber the consequences can be severe. Police arrived at a CVS pharmacy early Tuesday morning to find Steven Jakaitis, 42, sleeping in his idling car with a nylon stocking over his head and a cap pistol in his pocket.
By his side was a note that read: "I have a Gun DO NOT Press any Alarms or let Custermors (sic) know Empty the All the register."
A customer called police after seeing Jakaitis, who was also wearing a black wig and a scarf. On the back seat of his car, officers found a plastic bag containing 36 unused hypodermic needles. He spoke incoherently after the officers woke him, Capt. Anthony DiBona said.
He never actually went into the store, police said.
At his arraignment Tuesday, Jakaitis pleaded innocent to attempted armed robbery, possession of a hypodermic syringe and receiving a stolen car. He was ordered held on $1,000 bail and ordered to appear for a pretrial conference on April 12.

Wonder if he was narcoleptic?
ROFL......truth is so much funnier than fiction these days.....
I've heard of "sleeping on the job" but this is ridiculous!!!
"...Empty the All the register."
Think he meant "all your register are belong to us?" I guess a life of crime is more exhausting than it appears to be on TV. :)
He was vey series.
"Son, you've got a panty on your head."
Poor guy. Can't even fail properly.
You obviously failed at school (see grammer/spelling,) You fail at being a productive member of society, then when you hit rock bottom, you fail in your attempts to go rouge.
I hope he doesn't fail in fending off his amorous cell mate.
Oh yeah, he's gonna do really well in prison. :)
No crime was committed, right? This reminds me of "Minority Report".
It's the right thing to do.
"Alright you hayseeds it's a stickup! Everybody freeze. Everybody down on the ground."
"Well, which is it Young Feller? You want I should freeze or get down on the ground? I mean to say, if'n I freeze I can't rightly drop. And if'n I drop, I'm gonna be in motion. Y'see..."
