Photo: Gumby and Accomplice Turn Themselves in
Robbery unit detectives working with San Diego police reviewed the surveillance video of the alleged attempted robbery on a 7-Eleven perpetrated by a man wearing a Gumby suit and were able to identify an accomplice.
Jason Giramma, a 19 year old entered the 7-11 shortly after Gumby, and promptly left when he realized he and his buddy in the suit hadn’t really thought their plan through.
Giramma was contacted by detectives who told him he had been identified, and it was in his best interest to admit to the attempted crime, contact Gumby and turn themselves in.
Tuesday morning, Giramma went into police headquarters along with Jacob Kiss –also 19 years-old a.k.a. Gumby. The pair were interviewed by officers and then released with no charges filed against them. The bad news is they won’t be able to keep the Gumby suit, it was confiscated by police.
The case was sent to the District Attorney’s Office to determine whether or not any charges will be filed, as nothing was stolen, and any verbal threat was comically muffled by the suit, and even though Gumby said to be armed, fumbled inside the costume for a weapon, he was never able to produce it.
