Snot Bandit Strikes at Costa Mesa Bar, Forgets Loot
|Stimbert: Please use Shout it Out|
Well, an apparently intoxicated man with snot on his sweatshirt walks into a bar . . .
This isn't a joke:
An apparently intoxicated, masked man with snot on his sweatshirt and holding a revolver walked into a Costa Mesa bar early this morning and demanded cash.
That's the story police are telling today about Ryan Matthew Stimbert, a 37-year-old Irvine resident who forgot to take the cash from the Avalon Bar before leaving, according to a Costa Mesa Police Department press statement.
Police say they captured Stimbert after he allegedly fired his weapon at an occupied building.
It really wasn't a stellar evening for Stimbert. He probably felt unloved. He'd been asked to leave another bar in the area earlier in the night, according to a police investigation.

His criminal history includes multiple arrests for illegal drug and weapon possession charges, according to court records.
