No, not THAT James Taylor…. This James Taylor, a 21 y/o from Immokalee, Florida. That’s his mug shot below…
Not the brightest bulb on the tree Jim here was fired from his job at the prestigious Immokalee, Florida Dunkin Donuts on November 8th, 2016 for stealing from the cash register (theft).
Less than two (2) weeks after his termination, on Saturday, November 19th, 2016, Jim returned to his former place of employment, not out of nostalgia, nor even to secure a cup of the best commercial java in town (yeah, that’s right, I implied that…..)
Rather, Jim popped up at the Immokalee Dunkin Donuts at about 5:30 am, just as it was opening, armed with a sawed-off shotgun and wearing a bandanna to cover his face. (No, that’s not Jim below… that’s some other lunatic robbing someone else with a shotgun – not sawed off – and donning a bandana.)
Jim entered, aimed his shotgun at one of his former co-employees, ordered the woman to the ground and told her not to watch as he took all the the money from the cash register and the tip jar, reportedly totalling about $350.00.
Jim then allegedly dragged his former co-worker to the store’s back office and made her unlock the door so he could steal more money that had been stashed inside. Later the clerk would identify the assailant as Jim, her former co-worker, and would clearly tell officers that she was in fear for her life. Canvassing cops found the shotgun and a sweatshirt that Taylor had been identified as wearing during the robbery in a dumpster behind the CVS Pharmacy store across the street, and it did not take police officers long to spot Jim riding a bicycle just a block away from the crime scene. And, as if if the eyewitness identification, the abandoned and recovered physical evidence and Jim himself being proximate to the crime scene were not enough, a surveillance video captured Jim running through a nearby alley after the robbery and, adding insult to injury, a homeless man likewise spotted him fleeing the scene.
Memo to Jim: Look, I am not here to help you (or anyone else) to commit crimes but how freaking dumb do you have to be to rob the store that fired you, the people that know you, just day after being terminated? Clearing you are one of…
