Heist of the century

These two criminal masterminds are in quite a bit of trouble after their latest caper:
Deputies arrested Robert Eugene Thompson, of 2211 Holloman Road, Plant City, and Taurus Deshane Morris, of 5852 Odom Road, Lakeland.

Besides the burglary charge, Thompson faces a charge of aggravated assault.

The sheriff's office said the two men entered the home about 3:35 a.m. Thompson armed himself with a folding knife while Morris held a chrome pistol, arrest reports said.
And what did the two of them get for their trouble?
Thompson held the knife against the victim's neck and demanded the metal eggbeater, which was found in his left back pocket when he was arrested, the sheriff's office said.
Um, I'm pretty sure they sell those at most grocery stores. If you'd stolen some money from the victim, you'd have been able to go buy one.
