A would-be armed robber’s attempt at hitting an Oakland Park Mobil gas station convenience store last Thursday quickly drooped lower than his saggy jeans.
To begin, he showed his face as he did his underwear — he donned sunglasses only after passing by the entrance’s surveillance cameras.
Then, he demanded money from the clerk, backing up the demand with drawn pistol encouragement. Despite the closeness of the firearm, the clerk still managed to escape into a back room.
Left alone with the cash register, the man found his efforts stymied by modern technology. The 5-11 criminal ran out, jumped into a light-colored Toyota and left 901 W. Oakland Park Blvd with only slightly more dignity (a smidge) than cash (none).
