MARSEILLE, France (Reuters) - An elderly man has robbed a pharmacy in the southern French city of Marseille for the fourth time in less than a year, each time making off with its full stock of the anti-impotence drug Viagra.

Each time he strikes, he appears at closing time armed with a knife and marches the three female members of staff to the cupboard where they keep the coveted blue pills, Marseille police said.

He then leaves quietly with his stash and the day's takings.

Police said they did not know whether the thief was stealing the Viagra for his personal use, or to resell the pills illegally with a hefty premium.

I think the moral is, if you are in france, lockup your grandmothers.

No, this is what happens when the French do NOT allow online pharmacies to operate in their country :)

The lengths these affiliate boys will go to....

doh. funny stuff.

I'm wondering, is this a hard crime to commit?

It's a bad thing, but perhaps if it was harder, this wouldn't happen again?

he he.

He may have a rock solid alibi. If he gets a jury that is soft on crime, he may walk, with a noticeable limp, but freedom makes all men stand taller.

Okay, I'm reaching, time to quite this thread. ;)

Or point to the north pole - whichever comes first.

Not a chance, Quinn. This one's even better than the old chicken head thread.

Question is: Will they catch him red handed with his pants down?

No doubt if they do they'll deal with him with a strong hand.

The Police at a press conference said:

"It just keeps getting Harder & Harder to grab hold of him"

to which the press replied

"Maybe you should try the Soft approach"

Interesting that this took place in Marseille. If anyone is familiar with the French national anthom, (La Marseillaise), the first line (which is repeated several times throughout the anthem) is:

"Rise Up Sons of the fatherland, let's stand!"

Seems to me this fellow is simply being patriotic! :)
(added) ... Or perhaps he is planning a new revolutionary war and doesn't want his boys to be too soft on the enemy.
