According to a Broward Sheriff's Office report, the two men held four women at gunpoint as they robbed thousands of dollars from the store safe.

"I'm doing this because my homegirl filled out an application and y'all didn't hire her," he said to them.

Lawbreaking (and bail bond payments) behind him now, he hopes to break into the Guinness Book of World Records.
