[March 04, 2009]  RIB MOUNTAIN, Wis. (AP) -- Authorities said a man who robbed a gas station made no threats, displayed no gun, simply offered an apology as he fled with a fistful of cash. A sheriff's detective called the suspect a "polite robber."

DonutsThe man walked into the Petro Mart Sunday, asked for some cigarettes and when the cash drawer was open, grabbed a stack of $20s.

The sheriff's department said the man told the clerk he was sorry he had to take the money.

A store surveillance camera captured only blurry footage of the robbery. The suspect was still at large.
