Hey, I just work here

How dumb is this?

A suspect in a bizarre robbery has been nabbed.

Police in Mesa, Arizona, allege that the man, identified as 21-year-old Marc Antoine Stovall, called a 7-Eleven store there on April 27, falsely claiming to be a new employee, arranged for training and then went to the store and was taught how to use the cash register.

Later that day, according to police, Stovall returned, purchased several items, including a roll of duct tape, but then said that he didn’t want the tape.

An hour later, Stovall came back to buy beer. When the clerk commented about his first name after he provided her with photo ID, police say that he pulled a gun, forced the woman into a bathroom and bound her with duct tape.

Stovall then went back out front, pretended to be the clerk and was helping customers when the real clerk broke free, emerged with a gun and Stovall fled with some cash.
