Deland, Florida (The Weekly Vice) - Larry Franklin, a 16-year-old DeLand High School student was jailed after he allegedly held up a convenience store, armed with a bottle of salad dressing.
According to DeLand police, Franklin robbed the DeLand Citro convenience store on South Woodland Boulevard on Friday, armed with a bottle of salad dressing. The suspect reportedly got away with about $468 in cash, which he used to buy jewelry and drugs.
Investigators say two-and-a-half hours later, he entered the Friendly Way convenience store, picked up a bottle of dressing from the shelf, walked behind the counter, and pointed a bottle of dressing at the clerk.
When the clerk pulled out a gun, the teen decided the jig was up and agreed to leave the store. He was arrested a short time later in front of the store.
His actions were caught on the stores surveillance camera.
Franklin told police he needed the money to buy marijuana and jewelry and stated that he would have taken the money by force if the clerk did not have a gun.
Franklin was booked into the Volusia Regional Juvenile Detention Center and charged with robbery and attempted robbery. He had been to the center before, and bragged about his previous criminal charges.
In September, Franklin attempted to rob the Corner Store at 445 W. Beresford Ave. with a knife. At the time, Franklin told police his father refused to give him money, so he went "gangster."
