If you’re new to Busted Coverage Cuff ‘Em, there is a lesson we’ve long tried to get across to donut shop armed robbers. When the lady you’re robbing puts two glazed donuts in the bag with the cash you wanted, ditch the donuts. Meet Florida Dunkin’ Donuts robber Michael Ray. He’s a burnout who needs some cash. It’s early in the morning and where else to rob? Hit the donut shop. But it’s Michael’s stupidity that ends up getting the best of him.
According to deputies, 27-year-old Michael John Ray entered the Dunkin’ Donuts on Pasadena Ave. South in St. Petersburg just before 6:00 a.m. and demanded the cashier give him all of the money in the register.
The cashier placed the money, and the two donuts, in a Dunkin’ Donuts bag and gave it to the suspect, who then fled in a maroon, late model Hyundai with Connecticut plates.
Deputies later spotted a suspicious vehicle in a parking lot and confronted the occupant, who was trying to hide by leaning over in the front seat. The deputies recognized Ray from the cashier’s description and, after he confessed to the robbery, took him into custody.
Ray says he committed the crime so that he could buy a new tire for his car.
Did it for a new tire. BWAAHAAAAA! Good one. Honestly, in three years we’ve never heard that excuse. Tire=drugs. Drugs=rob Dunkin’ Donuts. Robbing Dunkin’ Donuts=drugs.
Even if Ray wouldn’t have admitted to the crime, the fuzz had the goods (the donuts). The donuts were still in the car. Uneaten.Tried to tell you fools. WHEN POSSIBLE, EAT THE FRIGGIN’ EVIDENCE. Now your ass is going away for a couple years and we hear Florida jail donuts suck balls.
