And then his grand criminal plan was foiled when he noticed the car was stick shift, because he apparently doesn't drive stick.
So it was time to switch to Plan B: RUN AWAY!
According to the Escambia County Sheriff's Office's Facebook, Antoren "Chief Keef" Bell, 19, fled on foot from the vehicle when he discovered that it was a stick shift.
The victim helped police ID Bell through a lineup, and he was arrested Friday.
The incident happened back in May.
Bell has been charged with theft, robbery, and criminal mischief. He was being held on $400,000 bond.
