A group of teens who stole a Sacramento, California, comic book store’s trademark “Flintmobile” in December were punished by being forced to dress up as The Flintstones and promote the store Saturday.
The teenagers were captured on video stealing World’s Best Comics and Toys’s display Flintstones car last December. However, owner Dave Downey declined to press charges, instead asking the three to dress up as Flintstones characters and work for him on the busiest day of the year: Free Comic Book Day, the first Saturday in May. From 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., the trio danced and held signs to draw customers into the store’s parking lot.
“I’m glad that, instead of having a normal punishment, we can give back to them instead,” 17-year-old Bradley, who spent the day dressed as Wilma, told Sacramento Fox affiliate Fox40.
