OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Police have arrested a man who they say used a toy dinosaur to rob an Oklahoma boutique.

Twenty-one-year-old Duke Spencer was being held at the Oklahoma County jail Friday on an armed robbery complaint.

KOCO-TV (http://bit.ly/1Kh9CQ2 ) reports Employees at the Oklahoma City boutique say Spencer was dress shopping on Saturday when he held up an employee with what they thought was a weapon. They say Spencer pointed an item wrapped in a shirt at the cashier while demanding money.

Police say he took $150 and then dropped the suspected weapon, which turned out to be the toy.

Officers used surveillance footage from a nearby store to identify Spencer, who was arrested Monday.

Online jail records didn’t list an attorney for Spencer.
