Priscilla was just chatting on her Bluetooth with her husband while she went to go pick up the mail. But suddenly, a strange man came up behind her with a gun and demanded money. After she told him she had nothing to give, he demanded that she take him to the ATM. He even threatened her life. Terrified, Priscilla complied with his demands.
But little did the criminal know, her husband was listening to the entire thing on his phone, including the death threats. He immediately called 911.
Meanwhile, the thief wasn't satisfied with the $400 that Priscilla took out of the ATM, and told her to go back home to give him all her valuables there. But when they got back to the house, Priscilla's husband had a little surprise waiting for them--cop cars.
