A man is facing a long prison sentence over a bizarre armed robbery.

Police in New York have released a surveillance video of the suspect and are asking the public for help in locating him.

Authorities said that suspect went into a bodega on Rockaway Avenue in Brownsville, Brooklyn, and took some food.

He then went to the checkout counter and handed the employee a $50 bill. The store clerk suspected that the money was counterfeit and refused to accept it.

That suspect became angry after being told the bill appeared to be counterfeit, and according to police, he pulled out a gun and threatened to “blow the employee’s head off.”

The suspect then grabbed a bag of Cheetos from the checkout counter and ran out the store. Police are asking anyone who recognizes the suspect to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
