Police in Windsor, Ont. are searching for a man who went into a Tim Hortons location in the wee hours Thursday, ordered a drink and paid for it.

You know, classic customer stuff.

But the force says in a press release that he then "demanded money from the cash register" and announced he was robbing the place.

The employee at the till complied. Security camera footage shows the suspect walking out of the store, drink in hand, after pulling off the casual heist.

The force's major crimes department is now investigating the incident.
