Brazen 7-Eleven thief caught on camera

(WJLA) - This is the brazen surveillance video that nearby residents are shaking their heads at, as it shows the overconfident bandit arriving at a Maryland 7-Eleven with a plan.

He kept trying to prop the door open until he was confronted by the clerk. Then, he sprang into action.

First, police say he hinted he had a weapon, and demanded money as well as cigarettes. But then after he stuffs the money in his pickets and heads out toward the door, he grabs the entire display case of cell phone accessories.

The robbery took place at about 3:45 a.m. on May 13, and it doesn’t appear that there were witnesses around. But investigators want you to take a good look, and are hoping that this robber looks familiar to someone.
