A man dressed in a Gumby costume attempted to rob a San Diego area 7-11 earlier this week. The clerk apparently thought it was a joke, so the culprit reached in his pocket for a gun. Instead, thanks to his outlandish costume choice, his large hands could only retrieve some loose change.
Gumby’s accomplice, who entered the store with him but went back out as a look out, honked his car outside and the two men fled without carrying out their robbery.
San Diego police are offering a $1,000 reward for identifying either the robber or accomplice.
