Law-breaking Gumby turns himself in

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, with an alleged accomplice.

Detective Gary Hassen said 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.
