Florida Man Robs Gas Station, Leaves Job Application With Identifying Information Behind

Categories: WTF Florida

The number one rule of a robbery is never leave anything behind that could identify you, yet Florida thieves lately are having a hard time following that simple guideline.

Anthony Thomas is accused of stealing from a gas station in Ocala. How did cops find him? Oh, he left behind a job application filled out with all the correct information.

Thomas had been a regular customer at Martin Oil, according to Click Orlando. He went in this week to fill out a job application. It isn't clear whether that was a ruse for the theft or simply killing two birds with one stone. However, when the clerk turned his back on an open cash register, Thomas reached over the counter, grabbed the money, and ran.

When police arrived, they were able to identify Thomas using the information he had provided on the job application. He was found a few blocks away and quickly apprehended.

He was charged with burglary, petit theft, and resisting an officer with violence.

Yesterday we told you about the Florida thief who left his buddy behind sleeping on a couch in a home they had just burglarized.

Last year a Florida teen walked into a porn store with the intent to rob it. The clerk, however, calmed him down and asked him to fill out a job application. He did -- and was then quickly tracked down by the information he had provided.

Come on, guys. Stop leaving behind accomplices and paperwork that can easily give you up to the police.
