A Florida man busted last week after robbing a store, told cops heâ€™d done it because the 10-year-old boy with him had made him do it.
18-year-old Steven A. Manor was caught red-handed on security cameras breaking a window with a large rock at a Dollar General store on July 14th. The 10-year-old was with him.
The elder was seen unlocking a case of cigarettes and stealing two packs.
Two people who were driving by heard the storeâ€™s alarm and saw three people running. Theyâ€™d followed the trio to a motel, which is where they were found two of them; Mr. Manor and the 10-year-old.
Initially, he denied even being involved, but then told authorities that the 10-year-old and the youngsterâ€™s two cousins had â€œmade him go into the store.â€
He was arrested and charged with criminal mischief, petty theft, and burglary.
