Palm Bay police said James Seehaus, 25, used a white cloth to make his BB gun appear to be a real gun when he robbed a 7-Eleven store in Palm Bay June 28, Florida Today reported Wednesday.
Seehaus was pulled over by a police officer responding to the robbery and the officer discovered the BB gun in the suspect's car and $55 in his wallet. Seehaus, who was identified as the robber by the store's clerk and another witness, said the $55 belonged to the convenience store, police said.
Seehaus, who was charged with armed robbery and theft, told police he committed the crime because he was upset about his fiancee's refusal to have sex with him and he needed to buy car insurance.
