Oops II!

If you see this man buy him a cup of coffee.
Maybe the shirt being worn around his face was a dead give-away.

Easily spotted suspect returns to scene of crime

Carlos Marin, 20, is accused of trying to rob a Dunkin Donuts in South Beach.

Using a crumpled-up newspaper as a fake gun, Carlos Marin, 20, walked into a South Beach Dunkin' Donuts Monday morning with a shirt half wrapped around his face, police say.

''You know what this is! Give me your register,'' he said.
No -- and get out of the store, replied clerk Voncile Scruggs, 26.
Marin ran off, but not before he asked: ``How you gonna describe me?''

Scruggs, the graveyard shift clerk, gave this description: early 20s, sporting a black tank top, black pants and with a red-and-blue striped shirt partially covering his face.

Miami Beach police said Marin bolted from the Dunkin' Donuts, 1606 Alton Rd., west on 16th Street, but inexplicably turned back to Alton Road.

Officer Ernesto Rodriguez found Marin across the street from the store.

Scruggs easily identified Marin. Detective Jeffrey Motola took a taped confession from Marin, who was booked into Miami-Dade County Jail.

He is charged with attempted armed robbery.
