When it comes to thieving, there are some basics: Apparently, Quincy Gerrard Petty didn’t get the memo. Petty is accused of walking into a Minnesota Dollar Tree and ordering the staff to hand over the case. Unfortunately for him, he forgot to pull down his mask – and one of the employees recognized Petty as the boyfriend of one of the store’s clerks. While he reportedly made off with around 2-grand in cash, police say he was also found wearing the same Bob Marley hat that witnesses described. Not only that, officers also say they recovered a crumpled envelope with the word “robbery” written on it…from Petty’s pockets. Not surprisingly, Petty denies everything. As for his girl, she’s giving him an alibi and says the accusation is all a set-up…and it’s retaliation for a complaint she’d filed against the store. Good luck with that, kittens.
