“Give me a couple guinea pigs, one of those cute kitties, some of those Greenie chew deals, all the money in the till, and throw a few of those little squeaker toys in, or else I’m going to stab you with this syringe that is filled with my HIV-infected blood!” Casey Garlick said to an employee at a pet store in Casselberry, Florida. Followed by this, “And if you don’t believe me that this syringe is filled with HIV-infected blood I also have a bomb strapped to me underneath my clothes, see this blinking light, that is a blinking light connected to a bomb I made, once it stops blinking we blow-up, so trust me this syringe has HIV in it, now hand me over few of those mini-dog sweaters and the money!”

Actually he might have just wrote a little something on a sticky note, slipped it to the clerk, and pointed to his pocket, but you get the gist. The pet store clerk couldn’t decide if they wanted to be invected with HIV or be blown-up, so they conceded to Garlicks demands, thus Garlick managed to flee the scene with some dough and some pet store stuff. However, police caught up with him later and his alleged HIV-loaded syringe and arrested him. No further news regarding if the syringe was really loaded with HIV or if he really had a bomb strapped on him. Or why the F#$k you would rob a pet store? If you are going to commit armed robbery you’d think you would be a little more ambitious and hit a place with a little more money laying around or more valuable merch besides a few packets of Doctors Foster and Smith Healthy Snax Sweet Potato Dog Treats. Oh Florida!
