In 2011, a man in a Gumby suit attempted to rob a 7-Eleven store but became nervous and escaped with only some loose change, the San Diego Police Department said. The unusual robbery attempt occurred at a store in the Rancho Penasquitos neighborhood of San Diego. Initially, the clerk thought the man was joking, but when the robber announced he had a gun and began fumbling with his Gumby suit, he soon changed his mind. When the robber's apparent accomplice in a car outside honked the horn, the suspect fled, dropping his whopping take of 27 cents on the floor. San Diego Crime Stoppers offered a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of Gumby and/or the accomplice. The suspect, a 19-year-old man, turned himself in the following day.
