Armed robbers are almost invariably armed with the same thing: a gun. Bo-ring! But nineteen-year-old Dylan Lee Suomi reportedly took a different tack Tuesday night when he decided to boost some Oxycontin from a Glendale Walgreens, using a samurai sword. Can't say this switcheroo was all that successful: He managed to get his meds, but he was grabbed by cops only about a hundred yards from the store, and he's currently being held on a $50,000 bond. But he brought something fresh to the crime blotter, no matter how you slice it.
