Upon entering the bar in ski masks and with toy guns they spray painted black, the patrons at Precious Metal sized up the trio, whose names still have yet to be released by the police, looked them up and down and then turned back to drinking. It took several hours for the authorities to arrive and charge them for attempted robbery as they were given the over-the-phone description by the bartender of the perpetrators being Caucasian.
