Call it a palmed robbery

This is awesome-sad.

Police say Gelando Olivieri, 33, tried to rob a Deland convenience store. His disguise: He pulled his shirt over his face. His weapon: A palm frond.

Olivieri, who store employees recognized as a local drifter, was arrested a few blocks away. He'll face armed robbery charges, for his use of the palm piece as a possible stabbing instrument. Seriously.

See how everything went down in the surveillance video, below. You hear Olivieri demanding money and see him shaking his frond, then a customer prods him out of the store with the business end of a barstool.
