Please excuse the headline pun. We make no apology for the ones that follow.

Two store robbers left one owner rather melon-choly after they stole booze and other items from a central Virginia convenience store. While one suspect has been caught, police are hoping that the public can help identify his accomplice.

Wearing a watermelon rind as face mask, the two men pillaged the store and ran off with their ill-gotten goods after posing for some vanity shots in front of the security camera.

Justin Rogers, 20, has been charged with larceny, underage possession of alcohol, and larceny while wearing a mask.

By the way, what do you call a watermelon that’s committing a robbery?

A waterfelon.

Why shouldn’t you trust a criminal watermelon?

They always look seedy.

What should these boys have done instead of steal from that store?

Use that “seed” money to try their hand at entrepreneurship. Now THAT would be using your melon. But that probably seemed like too much of a rind.

Okay, we’re done.
