They say crime doesn't pay. For one robber in California, it did -- but not much. Authorities in Riverside County say a woman with a gun robbed 11 customers at a market and got away with $6.

A Sheriff's Department statement says the woman was armed with a semi-automatic pistol when she went to La Chicanita Market in the town of Thermal on Tuesday afternoon.

Deputy Herlinda Valenzuela says the woman confronted 10 customers in the store and also demanded money from one person who was entering the market. She then fled in an old car.

Nobody was hurt.
