A North Carolina man sporting a mask, wig and hoodie stole $300 from a convenience store after holding the place up with a plastic gun. The fake gun was released by Nintendo in 1985 and manufactured to play the video game Duck Hunt, which uses a laser pointer to kill animated ducks with the zap of a toy gun. The phony gun-wielder was quickly collared by the cops after being found not far from the scene of the crime in the parking lot of a Dollar General with the plastic gun still on his person.
