Ben Crane, the Crime Stopper
By mustang6560 on 2/21/12
Ben Crane, the PGA Tour's wannabe resident funny man, helped thwart a burglary at a sporting goods store last week in Denmark.
A mannequin of Crane holding a golf club thwarted a late-night robbery Feb. 17 in the Copenhagen, Denmark, headquarters of Show Me Golfers, a golf app that Crane endorses. According to ShowMeGolfers, the burlgar(s) broke a window to gain entry but did not take anything, fleeing at the shadowy image of Crane. The alarm, however, went off, and upon arriving at the scene, police officers pulled their guns on the Crane lookalike and asked him to drop his gun before realizing it was a mannequin.
Of the incident, Ben said:
"I am pumped. This is awesome," Crane enthusiastically said Monday at the World Golf Championship-Accenture Match Play Championship. "It's weird, I'll tell you that. But it's great news. And I technically saved a major robbery. When the cops got there, they soon realized I had it all under control."
I am calling it now - Ben is going to use this incident as motivation for his next video. You heard it here first!

"According to ShowMeGolfers, the burglar(s) broke a window to gain entry but did not take anything, falling asleep while watching the pre-shot routine of the Crane mannequin. The alarm, however, went off, and upon arriving at the scene, police officers likewise dozed off watching the Crane lookalike."
