A person dressed as Gumby walked into a Southern California convenience store, claiming to have a gun and demanding money, but costume trouble and a skeptical clerk thwarted the would-be robber.

Surveillance video shows someone — police think it was a man — in a bulky, green costume and another man entering a 7-Eleven store in Rancho Penasquitos early Monday.

“You don’t think this is a robbery? I have a gun,” the costumed man said, fumbling inside his costume as if trying to retrieve a weapon, Hassen said.
