EUSTIS A man charged with robbing a Eustis gas station Wednesday probably shouldn't have chosen the one where he is a frequent customer.
According to police, the man burst into Circle K at 2754 E. Orange Ave. about 1:30 a.m. wielding a shotgun and demanded that employees open the register. One employee refused, so the gunman grabbed another one, stuck the gun in his back and made him empty the register of $80. Then he rode off on a red bicycle.
Unfortunately for Marques Roshaun Scott, 23, of Eustis, employees recognized him as a frequent customer, and one clerk said he even went to school with him.
Officers went to Scott's home on Hollywood Avenue but his grandmother said he was not home. A short time later, Scott, who goes by "Squeak," emerged from the home, apparently unaware that officers were watching the house, and a chase ensued. Police nabbed him a block away. Officers later found a shotgun in his bedroom.
Scott was charged with armed robbery and resisting arrest without violence.
Well...it would be rude to rob a perfect stranger...
hope grams drew a charge as well.
They should have asked her if she had any grandsons who lived.
Grandma Scott looked at the reporter with a disgusted expression and said; “I wazn’t lyin about nothin’!
He don’t live here. He was visiting me. He lives in one o’ those Tent Citys downtown. Don’t be callin’ me no liar!”
He should also be charged with bestiality for being one.
And that hair... I thought he was a female at first.
So only white perps get “Florida Man...” headlines.
Strange things are afoot at the Circle K.
Had this happen. Police were at the home of the “suspect” when he returned home. Lol
The store clerk is very lucky that Marques wasn’t alert enough to see he’d been recognized.
Odds are good the store clerks would have both been murdered on the spot.
Buckwheat would be insulted by that hairdo.
“Gimme what’s in that cash registe... say, wait a minute. I know you. What’s my name?”
“Hey, you, get over here and ... say, I know you from church. What’s my name?”
“Nah. You be good. Now open the register.”
Now get your hands up, it’s a stickup!
Hey, I know you... Virgil Starkwell...
Oh, Eddie... Haynes?
That’s right! We were in the marching band together.
You played the cello...
you were always...
I was the trombone... first trombone.
That’s funny, my God!
- What are you doing?
- I’m with the Philharmonic.
No kidding, that’s grand! I was justtalking to someone... Oscar Sunken about the great visory we had together.
That was hilarious!
You remember when we got caught taking a shower together?
I do... I never saw anything so embarrassed. I’ll never forget your face.
- My face? You dropped the towel.
- You dropped the towel too!
- Can I have your watch?
- Sure, sure, sure.
Remember we painted the car,
Yeah, it was Halloween.
Yeah that’s right, it was Halloween.
It was really funny.
- It was yellow stripes.
- That’s right, like a popcorn.
Keep your hands up or I’ll have to shoot you.
You remember the football game?
- You fumbled the last play.
- And you picked up the ball.
And then I ran the wrong way, and everyone was yelling go back, go back. And I thought they were cheering.
You can’t beat the good old days.
There were good old nights...
Oh I didn’t hear you.
Look it’s been great speaking to you, really.
It’s been nice to see you too Virgil.
Yeah, take it easy. Maybe we’ll see each other someday.
Good luck to you!
- Oh Virgil I just realized I’m a cop.
- No kidding, how’s it going?
It’s a great job. I gotta pension and I...
Do you remember when...?
Virgil Starkwell is tried on 52 accounts of robbery and is sentenced to 800 years in federal prison.
At the trial, he tells his lawyer confidently, that with good behavior he can cut the sentence in half.
Circa 1971 Cal Youth Authority (which had wards up to age 25) parolee gets a job stocking shelves and refrigerated storage in a mini market. Leaves and comes back wearing a ski mask over his face. Owner recognizes Tattoo of an eagle on the back of his hand. He’s 6’11” tall.
Got about half a block.
Parolee rapes 82 year old woman. She screams and fights him off.
He runs out and across street getting hit by car and breaking leg. Cops come. He’s dragging his leg down the street; 14 people following pointing at him.
that photo of the robber with his top knots...YIKES!
Prime comment! Buckwheat indeed!
Reminds me of the Snicker’s Commercial.
“Pete? Pete Zagarene? That’s Peter Zagarene. I taught him Social Studies. What are you doin over there?”
Ultimate bad hair day. Even Don King wouldnt go out looking like that.
