Woman Tries Robbing Store with Toy Gun

PALM BAY, Fla. (AP) — Authorities say a drunk woman tried to rob a convenience store using a toy gun.

Palm Bay Police spokeswoman Yvonne Martinez said 19-year-old Wilnelia Caraballo walked into the store Sunday wearing a clear plastic mask and holding an Uzi-type gun.

A store clerk yelled, “Palm Bay police. Get on the ground” in hopes of tricking the suspect.

Caraballo allegedly got on the ground and store employees held her until police arrived moments later. Authorities said Caraballo appeared to be intoxicated.

She was charged with attempted armed robbery.
