(Newser) – The short version is that a 28-year-old man and a 29-year-old woman were arrested in Alberta, Canada, at a convenience store after the clerk got suspicious about a credit card, reports the CBC. Police came and took the pair into custody—but not before separate, hard-to-believe escape attempts highlighted by the woman crashing through the store's ceiling. Digg has the video. As Deadspin puts it, this is "magnificently, almost suspiciously well-edited surveillance footage." Charges for the pair include using a stolen credit card, resisting arrest, assaulting a police officer, attempting to disarm a police officer, and resisting arrest from someone aiding the police.
