Police charged a Florida man with robbing a McDonald's through its drive-thru window.

Angel Torres Peraza, 37, was pulled over in an unrelated traffic stop in Miami when officers learned about the robbery at the restaurant in Hialeah less than an hour earlier, news outlets reported. His car matched the description of the robbery vehicle, they said.

Police then brought the McDonald’s cashier from Hialeah to the traffic stop, and he identified Peraza as the robber.

Peraza is accused of demanding cash while threatening to shoot the McDonald’s cashier “in the face” if he didn’t comply, the Miami Herald reported. The cashier handed over an undisclosed amount of money.

According to the police report, Peraza has denied he committed the robbery. He was released from jail on bond following his arrest.
