(Newser) – Jacob Kiss, otherwise known as the guy in the Gumby costume who epically failed in his quest to rob a San Diego 7-Eleven last week, is still not winning. Kiss, 19, turned himself in to police yesterday, accompanied by alleged accomplice Jason Giramma, also 19, who was pictured in the surveillance video but was not dressed as a cartoon character. Cops contacted Giramma last week and told him he and his pal must surrender, SignonSanDiego reports, adding that investigators confiscated the infamous Gumby suit when Kiss brought it in.
