A trio of would-be robbers in Louisiana have been arrested after an unsuspecting convenience store clerk stepped outside just as the heist was to go down, foiling the plan, authorities said.

According to local police, the three suspects, which include a 20-year-old man and his 16-year-old wife, were about to enter the Quick Check Market in Slidell just as the store was closing at 11 p.m. Tuesday, WGNO-TV reported.
