Ferndale came to national attention this week when one of our brightest citizens not only robbed a store dressed as Darth Vader, the villain from Star Wars, but also waited until he was in front of the security cameras to put his mask on.
Needless to say he was quickly caught, since the police had a nice full-on picture of his face right there on camera. The man was picked up after three days and identified as Jamie Hernandez, a 41-year old father.
He apparently thought robbing the Get & Go with a butcher knife would go over better if he wore a mask from one of his kids’ costumes to do the job.
