Another bright criminal thought it would be a good idea to rob a 7-11 dressed as Gumby. The would be criminal entered the Southern California convenience store and demanded money. The clerk thought it was a joke or prank and ignored Gumby. That is when things got a little weird:

The suspect then tried to reach into his Gumby outfit but experienced a “costume malfunction” and could not fit his hand in a pocket.

Instead of a gun, the costumed suspect pulled out 26 cents in change which he dropped on the floor, police said.

The accomplice, who had left the store and gotten into a minivan, honked at the man dressed as Gumby. He, too, walked out of the store without managing to take any money, police said. Both men left in the minivan. – Yahoo.com

The clerk didn’t even think the incident was worth reporting to the authorities. The clerk’s boss notified police of the would be robbery after reviewing surveillance tapes of the incident. Police are taking the robbery seriously and are on the lookout for Gumby and his accomplice.
