Clever shopkeeper keeps robbers away with homemade flame thrower

The fiery surprise made the robbers temporarily retreat and stumble, as the security footage obtained by Nine News shows, before moving around to ransack the till and allowing Rigney a moment to escape. According to the outlet, they made off with A$680 (US$481), which doesn’t seem like much after being embarrassed by a can of pressurised insect repellant.
Kudos to Rigney for his quick thinking. As a customer told the Nine News reporter, “I wouldn’t like to cross him, that’s for sure.”
Queensland Police said no one was injured and investigations are continuing.
