LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) — “Cowabunga!”
A Louisiana teen is behind bars after police say he donned a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle mask and used a stick wrapped in plastic to rob a convenience store Thursday morning.
Lafayette police say 18-year-old Lacorrion Detron Turner is charged with first-degree robbery. Police say he was able to force his way behind the counter with the stick. He then tried — and failed — to open the register.
Police say Turner fled on foot after taking two wallets from underneath the counter.
Officers arrested Turner a short time later.
It was unclear whether he has an attorney.
