PHOENIX —

An Arizona man accused of robbing six Circle K stores in the Phoenix area had a signature snack that helped police nab him, according to court documents.

Michael Samson, 20, began his robbery spree on May 11, according to azcentral. Samson is accused of walking into a Circle K store, pointing a gun at the clerk and demanding money. After getting cash from the clerk, Samson grabbed a Slim Jim and left the store.

The pattern repeated at other Circle K locations through May 11 and into the morning of May 12, according to court records. Each time, Samson would grab a Slim Jim after robbing the store. Witness accounts and surveillance video helped police identify the suspect. 

Samson confessed to robbing six stores, but said the gun was fake, according to authorities.

He released a statement apologizing for his actions.

Samson is being held on $5 million bond.
