(WDAY TV) - Police in California are looking for a man who robbed a convenience store, wearing a Gumby costume. It happened on Labor day at a 7-11 store.

The man first asked for a pack of cigarettes, then told the store clerk he had a gun hidden in the costume and demanded him to hand over cash.

While the suspect was waiting, he fumbled for something in his pocket, but the costume got the best of him.

Instead of pulling out a gun, he dropped some coins on the ground and eventually retreated out the door.
