Only a Fool Robs a Magician.
Once the thieves made their get away, One of the assistants called 911 while DC read off the car's plate number for the police. The four robbers were later caught by police, and all of the stolen property was recovered. Way to go Mr. Copperfield! Now, here is what I want to know. Say for a minute that you are a car full of would be armed robbers. Now you see a world famous illusionist, heading back to his Tour Bus, complete with two lovely assistants. This guy has escaped from Alcatraz, walked through the Great Wall of China, flown over the Grand Canyon, and made the Statue of Liberty disappear. Wouldnt at least ONE of the kids in the car suggest that they maybe go and rob some one else instead?
Gladly no one was hurt, the perpetrators were caught, and all the stolen goods were recovered. Perhaps the four thieves will be able to work on an escape act of their own in prison. [via the New York Sun]
