CORAL SPRINGS, Fla., Aug. 2 (UPI) -- Florida police arrested a man who they said was convinced not to rob a store by a manager who told him to "seek Jesus," but then went on to rob a nearby store.
Broward County sheriff's deputies said Israel Camacho, 37, of Coral Springs, attempted to rob a cellphone store July 23, but he was talked out of the crime by manager Nayara Goncalves, 20, who urged him to "seek Jesus," The Miami Herald reported Monday.
However, deputies said Camacho robbed a Payless shoe store a few miles away less than 2 hours after he left the cellphone store.
The sheriff's office described Camacho as a "serial robber" who has been in and out of jail since 1998.
Camacho faces charges of armed robbery, attempted armed robbery and failure to pay child support.
