Clumsy criminal arrested after bungling robbery

By Joyce Lupiani. CREATED Nov 29, 2013

A clumsy criminal was recently arrested in Florida after a series of mishaps during an attempted robbery.

22-year-old Johnny Love entered a Shell gas station in Miami Gardens. He was armed with a gun but it all started to go wrong almost immediately.

Love can be seen jumping over a counter and hitting his head on a concrete post. The video then shows him struggling with bags as he attempts to stuff it with candy. He even drops his gun at one point.

The store clerk takes control of the situation and offers to help by double bagging the items. Of course, he is simply trying to delay the crook until help arrives.

The clerk also suggests that Love help himself to some beer. Which he does. But that proves to be his undoing.

Love drops the beer as he is running from the store. He doesn't leave it though. He tries to pick it up.

And that is when the cops arrived and placed him under arrest.
