Let's say you're a robber. You've got your gun, you've got your mask, and it looks like the owners of an innocent Staten Island pizzeria have put their day's earnings in a giant sack and are driving it home. But when you hold them up and grab the bag, do you stop to double check that everything is there? You probably should, because otherwise you could be going to prison for stealing a bag of pizza dough. Which doesn't sound cool at all.

Salvatore LaRosa was charged with robbery after a 2008 stickup in which he and an accomplice mistakenly absconded with a bag of pizza dough. According to a complaint filed yesterday in Brooklyn Federal Court, LaRosa and an accomplice followed the owners of Brothers Pizzeria on Staten Island home on June 30th, 2008. They held the owners up at gunpoint, and demanded they hand over a bag LaRosa believed contained cash. Instead, it was full of pizza dough, though LaRosa still shot the robbery victim twice in the leg. Somehow it took until Friday for LaRosa to surrender to police, and he was charged with robbery and released on $1 million bail yesterday.
