83-year-old George Plane Junior of Mooresville, North Carolina was a greeter at a Wal-Mart in Statesville, North Carolina.

And for some reason, on Sunday night, after his shift...George decided to ROB THE PLACE.

He went to his car, got his gun, put on a mask, then walked back into the Wal-Mart, put his gun to a fellow employee's head, and made him empty a cash register.  He fired a few warning shots into the air...and after that he drove off.

When the police got there, witnesses gave them George's license plate number and they quickly tracked him down.

George was arrested and charged with armed robbery and discharging a firearm inside city limits.
