KINGSPORT, TN (WJHL) – Police say a male suspect unsuccessfully attempted to rob the Zoomerz gas station and convenience store, located at 3717 Memorial Boulevard in Kingsport.
Police said he had his face covered by a makeshift mask that he made by cutting eye holes out of a pair of underwear. The suspect kept his right hand concealed behind his back and threatened the store clerk.
“Don’t make me pull it out!” He initially demanded cash, then demanded cigarettes, but ultimately left empty-handed in frustration proclaiming, “This is stupid!”
