The man and his wife were staying with a woman and her 12-year-old son for Thanksgiving. The man got bored Friday and decided to take a walk with the 12-year-old. Naturally, part of the outing involved a plan to find something to rob.
That didn’t go so well. The the dinner guest (allegedly) robbed a store clerk of cash and Lotto tix at knifepoint around 10:30 p.m. at Portland Express Mart, 3701 N Portland Ave. A police dog found him hiding under a car with the boy an hour later.
The man told police a bum with a fade haircut made him do it.
The 12-year-old told another story, including the detail that he didn’t want to participate in the robbery but was dragged along.
Police arrested Randy Ceniceros, 23, of Las Cruces, N.M., on a complaint of armed robbery.
