A regional court in Bochum has sentenced a 91-year-old Nazi war criminal for trying to rob a pharmacy with a toy pistol.

The elderly SS man was slapped with a €1,600 fine on Wednesday for supposedly attempting to knock over a chemist in the Belgian town of Eupen near the German border in March 2007 with a realistic looking toy gun.

According to daily Express, the 91-year-old man told the court he didn’t ever intend to rob the store, but rather was protesting his 1968 conviction of committing war crimes. The aging Nazi had received a life sentence for murdering six Polish Jews during World War II.
