An armed robber was forced to buy a 99p cheeseburger so staff could open the till at the McDonald’s he was attempting to rob.

Daniel Parra-Braun, 37, burst into the fast-food restaurant and placed a note on the counter which read: “I am armed. Give till cash now.”

But he was left stunned when he was told the tills would not open unless he bought something off the menu.

Incredibly, Parra-Braun ordered a 99p cheeseburger and even handed over a £5 note before making off with £136 in cash.

The bizarre robbery was one of four Parra-Braun carried out in Coventry in just 12 hours before being caught on June 16 last year.

Parra-Braun, of Coventry, has now been jailed for five years after he admitted two charges of robbery and two attempted robberies at Warwick Crown Court.
