Imagine His Surprise

TEHRAN (Reuters) – Iranian police are looking for a phony sorcerer who conned a man into believing he was invisible and could rob banks, the Jam-e Jam newspaper said. Customers at a Tehran bank quickly overpowered the deluded robber after he started snatching banknotes from their hands. Appearing in court, the repentant thief said he paid five million rials ($625) to a man who gave him some spells and told him to tie them to his arm to become invisible. I made a mistake. I understand now what a big trick was played on me, the would-be bank robber was reported as telling the judge.
