Tweedle Dumb Sets Out To Rob Store, Places Mask On Face AFTER Security Cameras Capture Closeup Of His Face

Ferndale, Michigan (The Weekly Vice) - Jamie Carlos Hernandez, a 41-year-old Ferndale man was jailed Wednesday after he allegedly robbed a store while wearing his son's Darth Vader mask. What gave him away? The idiot forgot to put his mask on BEFORE he entered the store.

According to Ferndale police, Hernandez entered a Get 'N Go Market convenience store around 1:35 a.m. Monday, intending to use the dark side of the force on the store clerk.

He reportedly walked into the store and then fumbled with his son's Darth Vader mask while several security camera were trained on his image.

Investigators say Hernandez initially tried to place the mask on his face backwards, as cameras recorded each dopey move. Once he figured out which direction the mask was intended to face, he proceeded to the checkout counter where he threatened a clerk with a butcher knife, demanding cash.

Detectives circulated pictures of Hernandez's face, taken from the surveillance video. Several anonymous tips led police to Hernandez's home, where he lives with his wife and child.

Hernandez was booked into jail and charged with armed robbery. His bond was set at $50,000. If convicted, he could face up to life in prison.
