BERLIN, Pa. (AP) - A western Pennsylvania convenience store clerk told a would-be bandit to bug off by spraying the suspect with a can of insecticide.

State police say a masked woman entered the CSI Coalfield Mini Market in Berlin, Pennsylvania, on Sunday night.

That’s when store clerk Annabelle Miller tells (https://bit.ly/1nxQNOe ) WJAC-TV she took matters - and the can of bug spray - into her own hands.

Miller says she refused to give the woman money and waited for her to leave. When she began to retreat, Miller sprayed the woman in the face as the suspect left the store.

The whole thing was caught on the store’s surveillance system.

Miller says she’s glad she confronted the would-be bandit saying, “I just got mad. I’ve got better things to do with my night than that.”
