Cops: Fla. Man Robs Store Hours After Prison Release

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — A man is back behind bars after authorities say he robbed a central Florida convenience store just hours after getting out of prison for armed robbery.

Orlando Police said Derrick Daniels was released from prison Saturday and a few hours later walked into a convenience store and demanded the cashier give him $40. According to an arrest report, the 46-year-old held a paper bag over his hand simulating that he had a gun and threatened to shoot the store if he didn’t get the money.

Police say Daniels fled after the cashier handed him the cash.

Authorities caught up with him a short time later and arrested him for armed robbery.
