Good guy robber: Regretful California robber apologises and returns cash hours after robbing a gas station
The clerk at the gas station gave the robber some cash, and he left, also taking two bottles of beer.

Eureka, Calif.: Police in Northern California say a man robbed a gas station only to return hours later to give the money back and apologize.

Eureka Police Sgt. Steve Watson said Sunday that 23-year-old Cyle Warren Abbott Jr. told officers he needed cash to leave town for a fresh start, but then realized his mistake.

Watson says Abbott first entered the gas station demanding cash with what the clerk believed was a semi-automatic handgun.

He says the clerk gave Abbott some cash, and Abbott left, also taking two bottles of beer.

Watson says three hours later Abbott returned, giving back most of the cash and saying he was sorry. He says the weapon turned out to be a BB gun, which officers haven't found.

Abbott was booked into jail on $50,000 bail.
