Man robs store using “Duck Hunt” gun

In the spirit of Throwback Thursday…A man in North Carolina was arrested after being accused of using a pistol-shaped controller from the 1980s Nintendo game “Duck Hunt” to rob a business.

According to the York County Sheriff’s Office, 25-year-old David Joseph Dalesandro allegedly robbed a convenience store in the Charlotte area around 5:45 p.m. Tuesday.

Dalesandro was wearing a mask, wig and hooded sweatshirt at the time of the robbery.

He allegedly showed the clerk the fake gun, which had been painted black, and took $300 from the register.

Authorities quickly responded to the robbery call and found Dalesandro down the street and arrested him.
