Police are accusing a man from North Carolina of using a video game controller from the 80’s to rob a convenience store.

According to reports, David Joseph Dalesandro allegedly robbed a convenience store at 5:45pm. He was wearing a mask, wig, and hoodie when he entered the store.

It’s alleged that Dalesandro showed the store clerk a gun and left the store with $300 in cash from the register.

The gun that was shown was actually the classic NES accessory, Duck Hunt gun.

The gaming accessory was painted black to look more realistic.  Authorities found him down the street and was arrested.
