A 19-year-old San Antonio teen who was sent home after being late to his first day of work at a local McDonald’s decided the ideal way to spend his time off was to rob another McDonald's franchise about 5 miles away, police said.

The Bexar County Sheriff’s Office said the series of events began when a man dressed in an employee uniform entered a local McDonald’s on Thursday telling the manager he had been sent in from another location to help.

The shift manager reportedly said he needed to fill out some paperwork and took the man to the restaurant’s kitchen area. It was there the man allegedly pulled out a handgun and demanded all the money in the safe.

The manager complied and handed over $1,500 before the man fled.
