And they did.
The two suspects allegedly tried to rob the restaurant, but after they came back later they found police officers waiting on them.
Their bail was set at $25,000 each, and they are now facing attempted aggravated robbery charges.
One of the suspects was also charged with possession of a replica firearm, since they allegedly used a squirt gun for the attempt.
Would You Drink Water From A Toilet? This Straw Lets You Do Just That.
Say hello to the 'Lifestraw'. It's a hiker's new best friend but it might SEEM like the grossest thing, ever.
The straw-sized device can be dunked in any body of water and used to immediately gulp up some H20 - from the murkey stream you pass, to your own toilet bowl, you can drink anytime and anywhere.
The straw has a purification pipe that that removes 99.999999 percent of water-borne bacteria - making just about anything a safe drinking alternative… as disgusting as it may seem.
This invention is a phenomenal development for those living in poorer nations that struggle with access to safe drinking water.

How Do Dads Survive A One Dirrection Concert? With Ear Plugs, A Good Book, And A Nap!
A magazine editor photographed bored dads who were spotted reading, checking emails and even falling asleep in their seats at One Direction's concert in Los Angeles.
The expressions on the older mens' faces reportedly ranged from blank stares to annoyance and total confusion.
The chaperones looked especially out of place next to the tween audience, who were getting worked up into a hysterical frenzy over the boy band's performance.
Many of the dads were wearing earpieces, which makes sense as decibel levels at a One Direction concert have reportedly gone as high as 122 from all of the screaming– considerably more than the maximum safe level of 85.
** The boy band rose to fame after competing on the UK reality competition show The X Factor, and since then they have sold over 19 million singles and 10 million albums.
