He had a pink baseball bat up his sleeve and larceny on his mind

There was nothing up his sleeve — except for a baseball bat.

A man who initially appeared to be a customer at a Metro PCS store turned into a robber after pulling out a baseball bat that had been concealed in the left sleeve of his jacket.

The robbery happened shortly after 2:30 p.m. Feb. 13 at the cellphone store at 1499 SE 17th St. in Fort Lauderdale.

Surveillance video released by police Monday shows the man chatting up the clerk behind the counter before quickly pulling a pink, aluminum baseball bat from his sleeve and “demanded the cashier to hand over the cash in the cash register,” Fort Lauderdale police said.
