SpongeRob: Bandit Masquerading as SpongeBob Holds Up Idaho Coffee Stand


Nobody was laughing or talking in a giggly voice when a man, wearing a SpongeBob SquarePants mask pulled out a handgun and robbed a north Idaho coffee stand last night.

This morning's Coeur d'Alene Press reports that the suspect made off with an undisclosed amount of cash from the drive-up coffee booth on Coeur d'Alene's Sherman Avenue. Two women were working at the stand at the time of the armed robbery. The suspect was last seen taking off on foot.

The Coeur d'Alene Press said images from surveillance cameras are expected to be released later today, but there's a chance that the description will include the words "yellow," "rectangular," or "sponge-like."
