Pelham-- The crook who used a milk crate to conceal himself wasn't clever enough.

In broad daylight Saturday, cameras at the Flash Foods on Highway 19 in Pelham caught 46-year-old Marty Simpson using a milk crate as a mask to rob the store at gunpoint.

Police say his first mistake was loosing the crate and dumping the BB gun. Witnesses got a good look at Simpson.

"There were some people in the parking lot who saw him and were able to identify him," said John Sellers of the Pelham Police Department. "He threw the gun down right over here by the ice machine and threw the crate down right behind the store so we're working on finger prints."

Police easily found Simpson two hours later, thanks to witness accounts. Simpson now faces armed robbery, aggravated assault and burglary charges.

Earlier Saturday morning, Simpson also burglarized the Quick-Mart on MLK.
