Under the category of “bad luck for criminals” comes this story from Chicago.

The Chicago Sun-Times reports that a bandit put a gun to the head of an undercover ATF agent last Thursday and tried to rob him while the agent was trying to make a heroin purchase.

The paper reports that Robert Jefferson and Michael Parrish were charged in the incident.

According to the paper, the agent showed up at 11:38 a.m. in the Lawndale neighborhood of Chicago for a pre-arranged purchase of 25 grams of heroin from Jefferson.

Authorities said Jefferson told the agent he was only able to get 5 grams of heroin and was waiting for the rest to show up, the Sun-Times reported, citing a federal court affidavit.

Authorities said, according to the Sun-Times, as the two waited in the car, Jefferson sent a text message to Parrish saying, “im in here wit him.”

At 12:43 p.m., Parrish showed up and pointed a .38-caliber revolver at the agent’s head.

Parrish then said, according to the paper: “You move, I’m going to pop the s— out of you. Come on with the money.”

The agent then tossed $2,500 out of the car window and then fired a shot at Parish, but missed, the paper reported.

The paper reported that Parrish grabbed the money and ran but surveillance agents chased him down and made the collar.

“This proved what we know to be true,” said Dennis Burke, the new U.S. attorney in the District of Arizona  said, according to the Arizona Republic. “When drugs and distribution of drugs are in our neighborhoods, violent armed criminals follow behind them.”
