When the clerk asked him if he was serious … the man said it was a joke and that he wanted to pawn the gun.

“At the time it happened to the victim, the employee thought that it was a real robbery that was happening. The two guys initially left, but then they ended up coming back a short time later and that’s when officers found them, ”said Sam Clemens of the Sioux Falls Police Department.
