Man Robs Convenience Store While Brandishing ‘Finger Gun’ – Dumb Criminal of the Day
I think most little boys imagine we can shoot bullets (or laser beams) out of our fingers at some point in our lives. But around the ripe old age of six, we realize that it’s never going to happen.
Try telling that to this guy who robbed a 7 Eleven store in Florida, brandishing nothing but a ‘finger pistol’.
According to ABC Action News, a 42-year-old man was shopping in convenience store when other customers noticed him shoving items into his clothing. When a store employee started watching him, he yelled, “Why are you watching me?” And then proceeded to make the ‘gun’ shape with his fingers and point his imaginary weapon at people in the store while yelling, “I know You!”
He left the store with a cheeseburger, a Four Loko drink, a Red Bull and condoms.
Sounds like he was ready to party.
Police showed up and arrested him 150 yards from the store, hiding behind a shed.
[He] was charged with strong armed robbery.
‘Strong armed robbery’? Sounds like something out of a Dick Tracy comic.
I’m going to go out on a limb and say this guy might have a few screws loose.
