Authorities in Florida said a robbery suspect found hiding in a pond told deputies he was "just fishing" and the real robber "went that way."The story must have been written by a flee-bitten floron , too
The Volusia County Sheriff's Office said deputies responded Saturday to a Family Dollar store in Deltona, where a clerk told them a man with "Loyalty" tattooed across his abdomen claimed to have a gun and demanded money.
The clerk refused the request, leading the man to flea, the sheriff's office said.
Deputies in a sheriff's office helicopter spotted a man walking near a pond and wading waste-deep into the water.That's not really that unusual for Florida. When lived the Florida Man life, back in 1983-83, I used to wade and fish in the local ponds, even at night.
A group of deputies accompanied by a K9 unit located the man in the water and ordered him to raise his hands and surrender.Bummer about those tattoos, huh? "Plan ahead, 'cause that shit don't come off. . ."
Sean Torres, 29, allegedly told deputies he was "just fishing" and had dropped his pole in the water.
Deputies said they questioned Torres about the robbery and he responded: "The guy who did it went that way."
Torres was arrested, however, when deputies determined his tattoos matched those described by the store clerk. He was charged with robbery and criminal mischief.
