— A man accused of attempted armed robbery at Webb's Mini Mart on Sunday turned himself in to Raleigh police on Monday, according to Garner police.

Police said Clarence Fred Jeter III, 21, entered the store at 807 W. Garner Road shortly before 7 a.m. He pulled out a chrome or silver handgun and demanded the clerk open the cash register.

Police said the clerk then ran out the back door, and Jeter fled through the front door, without taking anything.

He served probation for a 2007 larceny conviction in Wake County, according to state Department of Correction records.

    ncsteward: Just keep an eye out for a guy walking around dressed really stangely...more than likely with a hoodie, low-hanging baggy pants, and work boots (which is kind of ironic isn't it...the ones who don't work wear workboots). He'll probably stand out like a sore thumb in that area.

    Dude, you stink at robbery. The words "attempted" and "armed" should not go together. If you're armed, you should be successful. If you're armed and unsuccessful, you need to give up. You aren't any good at many things in life. And now you can't even successfully rob someone when you have the edge. Give up robbery now! You aren't any good at it.

    If more people would arm themselves by carrying concealed weapons (permitted of course), then we could begin solving the problems within this community of thugs.

    Looks like another typical beginning of the work week with your local thugs trying to get something for nothing.
