Three would-be bandits in Longview got more than they bargained for in a theft of an area convenience store. Police say the trio attempted to steal beer from a store in the 1500 block of Mobberly avenue... And a female clerk tried to restrain one of the suspects. The woman physically wrestled one suspect until he was rescued by one of his fellow bandits... losing his jacket to the clerk. No arrests have been made and police are still investigating.
