DALLAS, TX - Police are calling it one of the most unusual, modus operandi's they've ever seen. Surveillance video captured the unusual convenience store robbery.

The man starts stuffing a bag with cigarettes, while his female partner gets on the counter and starts dancing to distract the clerk.  The clerk grabbed a small stick to wave at the thieves who ran out empty handed.

Police believe the suspects were part of another robbery where they got away with cash and cigarettes.
