The Value of Recon

Talk about your bad timing. A hint for the criminally minded - the best time to knock over a bar is not when the local biker club is having their monthly meeting there:

Two armed robbers who targeted a Sydney bar that was hosting a bikers' meeting must have 'failed robber school', said the club's chairman.

The men stormed the bar brandishing machetes and wearing balaclavas - unaware that 50 bikers were holding a meeting in an adjoining room.

Alerted to the robbery, some of the bikers chased the men as they fled.

One was caught after trying to escape through a back door. He was later treated in hospital for minor injuries.

The other man ran off but was arrested by police in a street nearby.

Southern Cross Cruiser Club chairman 'Jester' told local media that the robbers had 'picked the wrong night'.
That's an understatement, Jester.
