Man accused of trying to rob store, then calling mom for ride
- Just because the town is called "Niceville" doesn’t mean they’ll patiently wait for your mom to pick you up after you tried to rob the local convenience store.
The Sun-Sentinel reports that 22-year-old Zachariah Dalton Howard is charged with attempting to rob a Thumbs-Up Convenience store in the Florida town (home of the Boggy Bayou Mullet Festival), when he told the clerk he had a gun. But he left the store without any cash after the clerk showed him the empty store register.
Howard then walked over to a nearby Winn-Dixie store where he called his mom and asked for a ride home, the report says.
