Police say a man robbed a metro business while using what employees thought was a gun, but later turned out to be a drill.

The Oklahoma City Police Department reports that Daniel Dukes, 19, was arrested May 16 on a complaint of armed robbery of a business with an imitation firearm.

Employees at Little Caesars, 2120 NW 164 Street, notified police after a man wearing all black and a ski mask used a firearm to rob the business. During the robbery the man punched an employee and stole cash from the drawer and safe. The suspect then ran from the store.

Officers were able to track the suspect with help from the police helicopter. The suspect, later identified as Dukes, was tracked through a nearby creek and eventually taken into custody.

While tracing the suspect's route from the business, police found a pneumatic drill. The drill matched the description of a firearm giving by the employee at the business.

Dukes was later arrested and booked into the Oklahoma County Jail.
