A drug store clerk foiled an attempted robbery Tuesday when she told the would-be-robber she didn't have any money after he handed her a penciled note demanding money.

The man walked into the Rite Aid store at 944 N. Main St. about 10:30 a.m. Tuesday and handed clerk Iris Lain a note that said, ``This is a hold up give me your money.'After reading the note, Lain said, ``I don't have any change,' and gave the note back to the man, according to a report by M.A. Prevost of the High Point police department.

Lain's word was apparently good enough for the man, because he walked out of the store.

Police have made no arrests.

A woman who answered at the telephone number police listed as Lain's said Lain wouldn't be making any comment about the foiled robbery.
