Man leaves ice cream behind after robbing store
A robber with an apparent sweet tooth made off with the cash from an ice cream store -- but left his ice cream cone behind, Glendale police said.The manager was alone about 2:59 p.m. Sunday inside the Cold Stone Creamery in the 3200 block of Foothill Boulevard when a man entered and put in his order, according to Glendale police.
He then placed a note on the shop’s counter demanding all the money, including change, in the cash register, the Glendale News-Press reported.
Reached by phone Monday, the store manager said the man was “really matter of fact.”
“I was like, ‘Are you serious?’ He was like, ‘Yeah.’ So I said, ‘OK,’” she said.
After taking the money, the man exited the shop through a side door, police said. He left his order, coffee-flavored ice cream, behind.
The man was described as 5-feet-9 to 5-feet-11 wearing aviator-style sunglasses, a glove on his right hand and a dark-colored sweatshirt and baseball hat.
