A man was arrested in Florida after trying to rob a convenience store and then calling his mom for a ride home.
Zachariah Dalton Howard, 22, walked in to a convenience store wearing a long black coat, hoodie and blue jeans, and told the clerk he had a gun, though he didn’t actually show one.
However, the clerk showed him an empty register, and Howard left the store empty-handed. He called his mom from a nearby store to pick him up.
Howard told police it was not his intention to rob the store, and only came up with the idea while walking there. He also said he did not really have any weapons with him.
He was arrested and was charged with one count of robbery.
We now know who he’ll be calling for a ride home when he gets out of jail.
