Man In SpongeBob SquarePants Mask Robs Store
Two gunmen walked into an Osceola County 7-Eleven and one of them had on a regular black robber mask while the other chose a bright yellow Spongebob Squarepants disguise turning the funny character into a villain.
"It's not unusual for criminals to disguise their identity," Osceola County Sheriff's spokesman Twis Lizasuain said. "It is unusual he would use that particular character."
A shot was fired but no one was injured as the two masked men emptied the register and made off with what is being reported as a lot of cash.
Just minutes earlier, deputies said the same pair was caught on surveillance video trying to rob a Walgreens. "At Walgreens was an attempted robbery. One of the suspects walked into the store, realized no one was in the store and left immediately," said Lizasuain.
