Waco police arrest suspected robber after clerk knocks his Darth Vader mask off

By Kirsten Crow Tribune-Herald staff writer

Thursday February 16, 2012

Waco police arrested a robbery suspect whose Darth Vader mask was knocked away by the man’s intended victim early this morning, authorities said.

Leon Childress, 44, is being held at McLennan County Jail on suspicion of trying to rob a Skinny's convenience store early Thursday.

Police said the suspect, identified as 44-year-old Leon Childress, wore a “Star Wars” Darth Vader mask and behaved as though he had a weapon when he demanded money from a clerk at a Skinny’s convenience store at North 18th Street and Lyle Avenue at 3:25 a.m.

When Childress reached around the counter to the register, the clerk knocked the mask off his face, allowing the victim to get a good look at the suspect and identify him, according to officials.

Using the suspect’s last known address, officers arrested Childress at his Herring Avenue home without incident, police said. They were also able to recover evidence from the robbery, according to authorities.

Childress is being held at McLennan County Jail.

Between this and the “Osama bin Laden had stoned fantasies about marrying Whitney Houston” thread, the entertainment value of the headlines tonight is higher than usual...

Somehow I am sure that this DumbA$$ will wind up on “World’s Dumbest” Criminals (provided that it is a good video of the deed) on Tru-TV!

Especially with a Hello Kitty theme.

Thanks for the ping, Slings! Any thread with one good and one evil DarthVader and Lazamataz's getting all obsessive on it is totally awesome.

I have no idea what Lazamataz would or would not hit, and with what.
