SAN DIEGO -- A man accused of trying to rob a San Diego 7-Eleven while dressed as Gumby has pleaded guilty to misdemeanor burglary.

A lawyer for 19-year-old Jacob Kiss entered the plea Wednesday. Kiss' accomplice, 20-year-old Jason Giramma, also pleaded to the same charge. Both men were placed on three years of probation.

Police say the men entered the convenience store on Sept. 5. A clerk says the Gumby character claimed to have a gun but in a television interview, Kiss says the clerk misunderstood him. Kiss and Giramma turned themselves into police days later and the Gumby suit was seized.

The attempted stickup was captured on videotape.WATCH THE ATTEMPTED ROBBERY BELOW:
