    The Gumby would-be theft has voluntarily turned himself into authorities, according to San Diego Police Department Officer Gary Hassen.

    Jacob Kiss tried to rob a 7-Eleven last week, but the clerk laughed him out of the store. The 19-year-old then left the store without any stolen goods.

    Robbery unit detectives identified the suspects involved and told them they had to turn themselves in, Hassen said.

    SDPD interviewed Kiss and his accomplice, Jason Giramma, and released them until charges are filed. Detectives confiscated the "Gumby" suit.

    Kiss and Giramma's case has been sent to the District Attorney's Office, said Hassen. Charges may or may not be filed against the pair.
