Miami Man Dresses As Darth Vader To Rob Gas Station

A Florida man was arrested after he attempted to rob a Jacksonville Beach convenience store while wearing a Darth Vader mask, the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office says according NBC Miami reports.

According to police records, 32-year-old Jacob Mercer entered the ‘8 til Late’ convenience store Sunday night with a gun.

Surveillance video showed Mercer entering the store wearing black pants, light blue sneakers and a black and gray hoodie along with a Darth Vader mask. Deputies say Mercer, armed with a pistol, pointed the gun at store employees and demanded money. A clerk got into a physical confrontation with Mercer and refused to give any money.

According to the report, the clerk threw a jar of blue cheese dressing at Mercer during the altercation, causing a laceration to Mercer’s face.

A witness told deputies that he saw Mercer flee the area and get into a silver colored car with New York plates. The witness reported seeing Mercer remove the mask and that he had blood all over his face from the laceration.

Mercer was apprehended a short time later, and the witness positively identified him. Deputies found several handguns and ammunition inside a backpack belonging to Mercer.

Deputies say Mercer was taken to the hospital for treatment of the laceration to the face, and was booked into jail afterward.
