    Florida resident Cameron Pittman failed in his attempt to rob a shop with a PlayStation controller, not least because police officers walked into the convenience store in the middle of the fiasco.

    Mr Pittman was arrested by police in St Petersburg and charged with strong-arm robbery and violation of probation after trying to hold up staff in the Sunshine Foods outlet.

    According to Bay 9 News, the 20-year-old hid the 'Sony Playstation remote control' (exact type unspecified; PlayStation Move shooting attachment, perhaps?) in his pocket and pretended it was a gun.

    When police officers walked in and caught him in the act, he dropped his, err, weapon and yielded to them.

    Mr Pittman was apparently a suspect in a previous robbery at a Subway restaurant in the same shopping plaza, hence the convenient arrival of the law (they'd received a nifty tip-off).

    He now joins our growing list of worst robbers ever, though he doesn't quite beat our friend in Daytona Beach (also in Florida, funny that) who made a fist and pointed a menacing finger to get shopkeepers to hand over their takings.

    Justin MacGilfrey, 19, ended up in jail.
