Wearing a black hat and wraparound sunglasses, Dana Plato, a former child star, entered her local video store. Pulling out what appeared to be an automatic pistol, she approached the clerk and demanded, "Give me your money." The cashier, Heather Dailey, complied and Ms. Plato ran out of the store. Ms. Plato who played Kimberly Drummond, the daughter of a billionaire, on television, escaped with $164 in cash. Ms. Dailey picked up the phone, dialed 911 and told the police "I've just been robbed by Kimberly from 'Diff'rent Strokes'!"

When Las Vegas police arrived at the scene, a small crowd had gathered at the store's entrance. Among the crowd was Ms. Plato, acting like all of the other rubber-neckers. Ms. Dailey pointed her out, she was immediately taken into custody. Searching her apartment, police found a pellet gun that looked like the handgun used in the alleged robbery. Ms. Plato was subsequently taken to the Clark County Detention Center, where she remained until she posted the $13,000 bail. (The money supposedly came from selling her story to tabloid newspaper The Star._ she received five years' probation and was ordered to do two hundred hours of community service.

Some have suggested Ms. Plato contrived the ill-fated hiest as publicity stunt to revive her flagging career after "Diff'rent Strokes." She has moved to Las Vegas to look for work and, after losing her job as a counter girl at a dry cleaner, appeared in Playboy magazine. She maintained that she had robbed the store not for attention but, as she stated in The Star, "to pay the rent". At her arraignment, Ms. Plato pleaded innocent. Ultimately, Ms. Plato pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of attempted robbery.

    Yes, she was as used up as a bloody-Kotex and she looked like 500 miles of bad road. But it is still very sad how she ended up...she turned into a sniveling drugged-up part-time porn-slut and thats quite a way down from where she could have gone. She needed grounding in her life and evidently never had any. I pray for her soul. Rest in Peace, Dana. Hell on earth is over for you now.
