Amorous Couple Kiss During Armed Robbery

Fact checked

A loving couple enjoying a drink and a night out at a bar in Billings, Montana were captured on surveillance cameras kissing their way through an armed robbery.

Three suspects wearing dark clothing with bandannas and brandishing weapons held up the bar, ripping open the cash register just inches away from the couple’s closed eyes and ears.

The couple seemed intoxicated and oblivious to their surroundings.


NPR reports:

The intertwined pair continues kissing — just feet from the cash register — throughout the holdup, which lasted less than a minute.

Both wear baseball caps on backward and oscillate between locking lips and staring intensely into each other’s eyes, apparently so preoccupied that they failed to notice the gun-toting criminals.

The unfazed pair finally seem to pick up on the action after the suspects leave, as the bartender shuts the register.

There’s no word on the identities of the kissing couple.

Bar co-owner Chuck Rhodes tells the Billings Gazette that he has a low opinion of the robbers’ skill level. “To me, they weren’t professional at all,” Rhodes says, the Gazette reports. “They were just grabbing.”

It’s not clear how much money they came away with during the robbery early Monday, the newspaper reports.

Co-owner Bobbi Rhodes adds that the bartender is “doing well” and has “worked since the robbery.”
