Armed Robber Drops His Gun, Returns To Buy It Back From Victims For $40
Police say Cedrick Mitchell, 39, barged into a motel room at 12:30a.m., and asked the two men staying in the room for pills. But when they said they didn't have any, Mitchell pulled out a handgun from his waistband and demanded "everything you got," Capt. Warren Merriman of the Bradenton Police Department tells the Bradenton Herald.
That plan went awry when one of the victims pepper sprayed Mitchell in the face.
According to Merriman, Mitchell ran, leaving behind his gun, but soon returned to the motel room and begged to buy his gun back for $40.
Unfortunately, Mitchell was pepper sprayed in the face. Again. Then ran away. Again.
After calling 911, officers chased Mitchell down at which point he was arrested. He's currently being held with no bond at Manatee County Jail.
