Ferndale police have arrested a resident they say wore a plastic Darth Vader mask before pulling a butcher knife and robbing a convenience store.
Police in the Detroit suburb say the man fled Monday after demanding all the cash from the register.
Lt. William Wilson tells The Daily Tribune of Royal Oak the suspect goofed by putting on the mask while in range of a store surveillance camera.
Forty-one-year-old Jamie C. Hernandez was arraigned Thursday. District Court Magistrate James Brennan set his bond at $50,000.
Hernandez was in the county Thursday night, and it wasn't known if he has a lawyer.
Wilson says Hernandez got the mask from one of his children.
