Man allegedly uses stapler to rob Ice Cream Store

ASHLAND, Ky. (AP) - A man wearing a ski mask held up an eastern Kentucky ice cream store with a stapler, and briefly got away with $175.
Police identified the stapler bandit as Gerald A. Rocchi, 32, who was arrested shortly after he allegedly flashed a chrome-plated stapler at an employee of The Ice Cream Shop in Ashland on Tuesday and demanded money.

Ashland Police Capt. Don Petrella said he didn't know if Rocchi planned to shoot staples at the shop's employees or use it as a blunt instrument if he didn't get the cash. It didn't come to that because the employees handed over the cash, Petrella said.

Several witnesses saw Rocchi leave the shop and told police where he was headed, Petrella said. After arresting Rocchi, police searched his house and found money, a stapler and a ski mask, Petrella said.

Petrella said the chrome finish on the stapler could have made it look like a gun "if someone didn't get a good look at it."

Rocchi was charged with first-degree robbery. He made his first appearance in Boyd District Court on Wednesday morning. He did not have an attorney at the hearing.

He is just trying to keep up with Ashland's Duct Tape Bandit. Apparently it is an Ashland thing with the office supplies.

He was caught and "held" for the police by the liquor store employee. And by "held" we mean his face was held on the ground by a size 14 Wolverine work boot.


This photo, provided by the Ashland (Ky.) Police Department, shows the man they described as "The Duct Tape Bandit."

Police say Kasey G. Kazee, 24, wrapped his head with the sticky gray tape and then robbed Shamrock Liquors in Ashland, Ky.

"Kazee allegedly indicated to a female clerk that he had a knife and threatened to harm her if she didn’t give him the money out the cash register. The clerk complied and the robber turned and left," The Daily Independent reports. "Before he could make his getaway, though, a Shamrock Liquors employee, Craig Miller, tackled him in the store’s parking lot. Miller and several other men who came running over from the Foodland store next door detained Kazee until the police arrived."

The store's manager says the till was $15 short when he counted it after the robbery.

Kazee says it wasn't him. During an interview at the local jail, he looks straight into the camera and says: "Look at me. Do I look like a duct-tape bandit baby? I'm not no duct-tape bandit. You hear me? Live one-on one Ashland, Kentucky, you know this is not me. Do the math, do the homework, man."

Kazee was charged with first-degree robbery and is being held on $250,000 bond. He pleaded not guilty on Monday. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for next week.


Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.
