LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - A Lafayette teen is behind bars after police say he used “turtle power” and a stick wrapped in plastic to rob a convenience store.

KATC TV reports (https://bit.ly/1CqPZw5 ) the incident took place around 6 a.m. Thursday.

Police say 18-year-old Lacorrion Detron Turner was wearing a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle mask when he robbed the business.

Police say Turner allegedly used a plastic-wrapped stick to force his way behind the counter. He then tried — and failed — to open the register.

Police say Turner fled on foot after taking two wallets taken from underneath the counter.

Officers arrested Turner a short time later.

It was unclear whether he has an attorney.
