MARIETTA, Okla. -- A would-be jewel thief in Marietta didn't get far Wednesday night.

Authorities say Ryan Robbins, 21, tried to break into the Norton's Jewlery Store early Thursday morning. Robbins even brought along an ice chest, presumably to carry the loot away in. Robbins ended up leaving that, along with his shirt, behind at the scene of the crime.

"The subject had attempted to break in through the front door by throwing a large rock through it. He did not gain entry but when the alarm went off, he fled," Marietta Police Chief Linda Johnson said.

Officers caught up with Robbins shortly, and arrested him. He is in the Love County Jail.
