WPBF - A man dressed as Spongebob Squarepants, along with his partner in crime, held up a 7-11 convenience store at gunpoint near Orlando on Thursday.

Detectives said the cartoon character was a first.

"It's not unusual for criminals to disguise their identity," Osceola County Sheriff's spokesman Twis Lizasuain said. "It is unusual he would use that particular character."

Shots were fired, but no one was hurt. The pair escaped with a drawer full of cash.
