ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -

A man is back behind bars after authorities say he robbed an Orlando-area convenience store just hours after getting out of prison for armed robbery.

Orlando Police said Derrick Daniels was released from prison Saturday and a few hours later walked into a convenience store and demanded the cashier give him $40.

According to an arrest report, the Daniels, 46, held a paper bag over his hand simulating he had a gun and threatened to shoot the store if he didn't get the money.

Police say Daniels fled after the cashier handed him the cash.

Authorities caught up with him a short time later and arrested him for armed robbery.
