US thieves thwarted by restaurant cash register

US thieves thwarted by restaurant cash register

Police say three masked men who tried to rob a Chinese restaurant in the U.S. ran away empty-handed because they couldn't figure out how to open the cash register.
The men, one of whom had a gun, entered the Massachusetts restaurant Monday evening.
A female employee saw the gun, ran out the back and called police.
Police say the thieves couldn't figure out how to open the cash drawer, so they took off.
Police scoured the neighborhood but couldn't find the suspects. The attempted theft remains under investigation.
