On January 2, 2012, Lance Tomberlin decided he wanted to rob a convenience store. He entered the store located just outside of Tallahassee, Florida and ordered the clerk to give him the money.
Lance started shocking the clerk with the cattle prod. Finally, the clerk pulled out a handgun. Lance suddenly figured he would be on the losing end of a battle and ran away, ending the attack and robbery. Another employee ran after him, but he escaped in his vehicle.
The Leon County Sheriff’s Office issued a statement that the robber was arrested yesterday, January 8th and charges of armed robbery and aggravated battery were filed. Just the presence of a firearm by a concealed firearms permit holder stopped the vicious attack from continuing.
