MARIONVILLE, MO – Convenience store robberies caught on camera are unfortunately an all-too familiar sight. But a store robbery in Marionville, Missouri came with a twist.

Jon Lewis was doing his usual shift at the liquor store when a man walked in. Except the guy didn`t want to buy anything; he pulled out a gun and tried robbing Jon. There was one problem, though. The thief didn`t know who he was messing with. Jon`s a veteran, a former undercover detective and a former prison guard. So armed with his gun and some quick thinking, Jon pulled out his gun and shoved it in the thief`s mouth. He told the guy to take off and he did.

The suspect got away and police are now looking for him. But something tells us he`s going to stay far away from Jon`s liquor store.
