Two men unknowingly walked into a lion’s den when they attempted to rob a bar where off-duty police were having a retirement party.

The stickup happened at Monaghan’s Pub in Baltimore, right across the street from a Baltimore County Police station.

That evening, two masked and armed men approached the carryout counter of the bar and demanded money from the cash register before taking off.

Staff at the bar told the off-duty officers at the party what had happened and some of the them gave chase and eventually arrested the men.

The bar’s owner, owner Jack Milani, told the Baltimore Sun,

 he was surprised that someone would attempt to rob his bar because of its proximity to a police station.

It’s kind of odd you would even attempt it
[Officers] are always in here. There was a decent amount of them.

Well, what can I say, these are another addition to the Dumb A$$ Criminal File.
