Not a drill. A drill bit. You know, the part you must stick in an electric drill.
FNN and TomoNews report that early morning on September 1, a hooded man wearing a jumpsuit and a surgical mask entered a karaoke parlor in Higashiosaka City and started waving a drill bit at the staffer who had been counting the parlor's proceeds.
Apparently, the thief had the clerk turn around, and, as seen in this security camera footage, snatched away the envelopes that were sitting on the counter. Inside were the previous day's earnings, which totalled around ¥500,000 ($5554). Sounds like he's familiar with the karaoke parlor and perhaps knew what was in the envelopes.
Thankfully, no one was hurt, nor were any holes put in the wall.
The police are now on the lookout for a man in his 20s, 170cm tall, thin, and wearing a green jumpsuit with white cotton gloves and with a surgical mask covering his face. He also has a drill bit, but sadly doesn't know how to use it. See, you put it in an electric drill, and then, you turn it on. Easy!
