Shopkeeper bargains with laptop thief 

Who says you can’t bargain with a crook?

A shopkeeper was robbed of his laptop while talking to a customer Sunday around 10:45 p.m. in the 400 block of Broadway, police said. The man fled the store, but the shopkeeper chased him down, caught him, then promised him food and $100 for the return of the laptop.

The hungry thief agreed and returned the property, police said. On the way back to the store, however, the suspect ran off, saying he suspected he’d end up dealing with cops.

At least the shopkeeper got his laptop back, police said. Also, the incident was caught on surveillance video, cops said.
