    Cynthia Sheik took a cab to a Race Track store in Port Charlotte, Fla., and asked her driver to wait for her outside, according to deputies.

    But while she was busy demanding cash inside, the cabbie started worrying she was beating her fare and summoned a nearby police officer, according to The News-Press,

    Sheik made it out of the store with $320 — but not before triggering the alarm, and not before the clerk ran out to tell the cop Sheik had robbed the place, cops said.

    Sheik was arrested.
