    Men get 20 years for robbing gas station with NES Zapper
    Victims and police did not know

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    In Covington, Kentucky, two men were sentenced to 10 years in prison Monday for robbing a gas station with a “toy gun,” which has now been confirmed to be a Nintendo Entertainment System Zapper.
    Back in May, Arthur Swain, 18, entered an Ameristop Food Mart around closing time and approached the counter. He then displayed a gun, the NES Zapper, to the clerk and made off with only about $100 in cash from the register, reported The Enquirer.

    According to Assistant Kenton Commonwealth's Attorney Leanne Isler, Swain’s accomplice, Jeremy Goins, 20, acted as the lookout during the robbery.

    Both Swain and Goins pleaded guilty to second degree robbery and received maximum sentences from Kenton Circuit Judge Greg Bartlett.

    “Victims and police did not know the gun was a toy until after it was all over,” Isler said during the sentencing hearing Monday. “The defendants could have easily gotten themselves or innocent bystanders shot.”

    Unfortunately, a photo of the Zapper used in the robbery was not provided at the time of this writing.

    So uh, get your zappers ready?
