An Houston robber won the “Room Temperature Challenge” yesterday when he attempted to rob an employee walking to the entrance of a check cashing store. The robber apparently thought that the bag the employee had under his arm as he walked to the store was a money bag.

It wasn’t.

Officers were called to the Ruiz Cash n Carry store in the 1700 block of Sgt. Macario Garcia at Ave Q around 8:30am this morning.
