I've heard of robbers using toy guns to commit crimes before, but this one is new.
Stephen Luke was catching a taxi ride to San Mateo, Calif, when he reportedly put a metal object to the driver’s head. He apologized for robbing him and fled with his duffel bag and cell phone. Authorities later found that the supposed gun was actually two remote controls taped together.
Luke was sentenced to six years prison.
If you had to fake a gun with two universal remotes, what would you use?
