The young man who attempted to rob a Rancho Penaquitos convenience store dressed as Gumby pleaded guilty Wednesday to misdemeanor charges of burglary.
Jacob Kiss, 19, attempted to rob the 7-Eleven on Sept. 5 while dressed in a Gumby costume.
The clerk thought Kiss was joking, according to police reports from the incident.
Kiss will be allowed to withdraw his guilty plea and the charge will be dismissed in six months if he can prove that he has enrolled in school or has a job, according to Deputy District Attorney Ramin Tohidi.
His accomplice, Jason Giramma, 20, received the same sentence.
The Gumby costume was confiscated by police after the pair turned themselves in.
