Meet Patrick Abbott of South Florida.
Patrick is trying to make some money for himself, but instead of applying for a job, he decided to rob a Publix supermarket.
A South Florida man arrested for child abuse, accused of dropping a baby at a Walmart, is back in jail for a different crime. On Saturday 31-year-old Patrick Abbott faced a judge on armed robbery charges.
Police say last week Abbott handed a Publix worker a note written on a receipt demanding money, claiming he had a gun. The note read, “read carefully. I have a gun with me and put the money in the bag.”
Honestly, who robs a supermarket? Most of the real money is placed into the safe, and the managers usually take the money when the registers get full. I mean, is this guy that stupid?
The answer is yes.
Police said he was identified by the victim and taken into custody. The gun he claimed to have turned out to be a black stapler.
One wonders if this dolt even placed staples in the stapler. Those things can really hurt!
