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.
