Florida man robs gas station while applying for job


A Florida man is currently spending a little time at the Marion County jail after he robbed an area gas station while in the process of filling out a job application.

The theft by 33-year-old Anthony Thomas was caught on surveillance tape and it shows what at first appears to be a pretty clever petty theft plan. Thomas stands near the register filling out the application and when the cashier has to walk away to attend to something he just reaches over the counter and grabs the cash out of the drawer.

After the crime Thomas fled the scene but was located blocks from the store. He was arrested and charged with burglary, petit theft and resisting with violence.

So how did Thomas get caught so easily after what appeared to be a decent plan? Dude used his real name and information on the application he was filling out…
