ORLANDO, Fla., April 24 (UPI) -- Police in Florida said witnesses foiled a fake Dunkin' Donuts corporate auditor who attempted to steal cash from the eatery.

The Orange County Sheriff's Office said Ricardo Diaz, 48, convinced employees at the Alafaya Trail doughnut shop in Orlando that he has been sent from the company's corporate headquarters to conduct an audit and talked them into pulling out the register drawer, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported Tuesday.

Diaz allegedly grabbed cash from the drawer and attempted to flee while the workers were in a back room but he was stopped by witnesses about 200 yards from the shop and held until deputies arrived.

Diaz was booked into the Orange County jail on charges of robbery, petit theft and burglary.
