Robber Arrested After Stopping to Eat Ice Cream Behind a Dumpster


We’ve all been there: a rough day at work sends you spiraling downward into a pint of ice cream. And then, thanks to the restorative powers of an icy carton of Chunky Monkey, your day magically improves.

But dessert is not always a panacea—it can be your undoing as well.

One armed robber learned this lesson the hard way last Saturday when he stopped mid-heist to gobble down a pint of Ben and Jerry’s behind a dumpster.

Just before 8 pm Saturday, police got a call from security staff at the Safeway near 15th Ave NW and NW Market Street after they confronted a shoplifter outside the store.

The suspect pulled a knife on a security guard, dropped a basket full of cookies, chips, salsa, candy, soda and butter, and then fled and then fled up 14th Avenue NW.

Officers found the suspect a few blocks away, bear NW 53rd St., sitting next to a dumpster, using a lighter to scoop out the innards of a pint of Ben and Jerry’s ice cream.

The 31-year-old man denied that he had robbed anyone, and sat eating his ice cream as police conferred with Safeway security.

After security officers told police the suspect had previously been trespassed from the Safeway and gave their account of the robbery, police asked the man for his side of the story. “Security came out of nowhere,” he told officers, adding that all he did “was not pay for some items.”

Officers booked the man into the King County Jail for robbery and booked his leftover ice cream into the dumpster.

LAKE WALES — About 8:30 a.m. Wednesday, participants in the Mall Walker program were getting their exercise by walking around Eagle Ridge Mall before its stores opened for business.

Two men decided they would do their walking over to the Hershey Ice Cream Shop in the food court and help themselves, police said. What they didn’t realize was that while the shop wasn’t [yet] open for business, its security camera was, police said.

Police identified the pair as Angus Blaze, 38, and Taijh Flash, 19, both of 325 Ninth St. W., Frostproof. They each were charged Friday with two counts of burglary and two counts of petty theft and booked into the Polk County Jail.

Caught in full view of the security camera was Blaze entering the closed business and helping himself to an ice cream cone, according to police reports. Flash was seen on the video warning Blaze of another person approaching the food court, according to police.

The two left, but apparently one cone wasn’t enough. The two men returned, re-entering the view of the camera, police said. Blaze removed a gallon tub of chocolate ice cream along with several ice cream cones from behind the camera with Flash again acting as lookout, police said.

Police said the two men left on a Winter Haven Area Transit bus, the same bus on which they were arrested two days later after detectives said they had viewed the video and identified them.

A spokeswoman for the restaurant said: “We are sorry that this occurred and the restaurant has apologised to the customer. This type of behavior is not tolerated and we are taking the appropriate actions with the employee.”
