Wait, what?

Police in Spain said they had arrested a teenager who held up a gas station, making off with around 2,000 euros (P122,000) but paying for a soda before fleeing.

The teenager is suspected of having burst into a gas station in Estepona on Spain's southern coast on Thursday, Jan. 4, wearing a hoodie and a mask, with a fake gun.

"After threatening the staff, he took the money from the cash register, about 2,000 euros, and curiously, before leaving he paid for a soft drink which he took from a display," police said in a statement.

Officers arrested the youth, as well as his suspected accomplice who is thought to have given him the fake gun, on the same day of the crime.

One of the suspects told police they planned to buy a scooter with the stolen money.
