7-Eleven robbery suspect cashes out

By FOX 4 Staff. CREATED Aug 4, 2014

SOUTH FORT MYERS, Fla. - A South Fort Myers teenager is facing a robbery charge, captured because he failed to come up with a good disguise.

18-year-old Justin Lee Branden was arrested for the robbery of the 7-Eleven early Sunday morning at 9651 Cypress Lake Drive.

Detectives checked the surveillance video and noticed the suspect wearing a bandana and red-shoe laced Converse shoes.

Video from earlier in the evening showed Branden coming into the store wearing similar clothing.

Wearing red shoe laces to a robbery was probably not a very bright idea for this Fort Myers man.

After securing a search warrant for his residence, clothing was discovered in the residence that was used in the robbery; including the Converse shoes with red shoe laces.

Detectives were unable to locate the stolen cash, but did recover:
 -44 rolls of quarters
 -36 rolls of nickels
 -20 rolls of dimes
 -1 roll of pennies
 Totaling $612.50

The investigation continues.
