Here's your daily dose of weird news, and it's based right here in South San Francisco.
South City police were called to a local 7-Eleven on Saturday at 3:30 a.m. in response to an armed robbery.
The clerk at 7-Eleven claimed that a man, later identified as Michael Daniel Aragon, 29, had entered the store, bought taquitos and left. Minutes later, he returned, stuffed his pockets with candy and started to walk out of the building.
According to San Mateo County District Attorney's Office notes, the clerk confronted Aragon, who lifted his shirt to reveal a handgun (it was later revealed to be a BB gun). Scared, the clerk retreated and called the police. Before the cops could arrive, Aragon stole more taquitos and took off in a car.
Police found Aragon in his vehicle along with the gun and candy, DA's notes show. The location of the taquitos is not accounted for in the DA's notes.
Aragon was taken to jail on theft charges. During the booking process, a bag of methamphetamine was found in his rectum, according to the DA's notes.
The accused thief made his first court appearance for the case on Tuesday morning where he was appointed a public defender. He was given a subsequent court date of Feb. 13 for arraignment.
Aragon remains in custody with bail set at $500,000.
