SAN DIEGO (AP) — Gumby has surrendered.
San Diego police say the man accused of trying to rob a convenience store last week dressed as the famous claymation character turned himself in Tuesday, with an alleged accomplice.
Detective Gary Hassen tells the San Diego Union-Tribune that Jacob Kiss and Jason Giramma voluntarily went to police headquarters. He says Kiss brought the Gumby suit and turned it in as well.
Police say a man dressed in a Gumby costume and an accomplice went into a 7-Eleven in Rancho Penasquitos on Labor Day and told the clerk it was a robbery.
The clerk thought it was a prank and dismissed him. Both then left the store.
Surveillance video shows the clumsy would-be robber struggling to keep the green suit on as he walked out the door.
