Alleged would-be robber just didn’t have the touch

Call it a Kindle Don’t Touch.

Why? Because you might get charged with felony shoplifting if you pick up three of them and try to leave the store without passing by the register.

Columbus police say that’s what happened Tuesday afternoon at Best Buy on Manchester Expressway. Adam Brent Carter, 25, is accused of taking three Kindle Touch (Touches?) and stashing them in a bag he had before trying to leave the store.

An employee spotted Carter, and he was apprehended on Best Buy property, reports state.

The Touches are valued at $449, police said.
