Troy Cowart, a simple man and Daytona Beach resident, tried to rob a Subway Tuesday, June 9th, by putting his hand under his shirt and pretending it was a handgun.
According to the Daytona Beach New-Journal
, Cowart walked into the 213 Mason Ave., Subway location at around 7:30 p.m. and demanded money after putting his hand under his shirt and pointing his fingers, implying he had a real gun.
Employee Kayla Lesavage then told Cowart she knew it was his hand and not a weapon. Cowart replied that he had a knife, which was probably just a different finger configuration, but left the store after a manager threatened to call the police.
The 45-year-old then crossed the street and attempted to use his "finger gun" to rob the Krystal restaurant, according to police.
As of Wednesday, Cowart is being held without bail on charges of attempted robbery with a deadly weapon and violating his probation, which was for attempted robbery.
