Ocala, FL-- Police in one Florida town said identifying a suspect in a robbery was easy. He practically handed them his personal information.

That's because the suspect robbed a Citgo gas station after filling out a job application. The robbery was caught on surveillance tape. When employees at the store looked at the tape, they told police the man had just put his information on a job application.

Police checked out the information and sure enough, the suspect had used his real name and was known by employees...because he was a frequent visitor!

Police said that shortly after filling out a job application at an Ocala Citgo gas station on Tuesday, Anthony Thomas, 33, took $130 in cash from a drawer and walked out the door.
 
Police say Thomas still had the cash on him when he was arrested.
