Voices in his head told him to do it

A 30-year-old man is in custody after calling police to admit he had just held up a convenience store in Springfield, Missouri.

Less than an hour after the holdup yesterday, officials say a man called 911, admitting he staged the robbery "because the voices in his head told him to."

The store's cashier reportedly said the man threatened him with a broken bottle, took cash from the register, then fled.

Police arrested the suspected thief at a pay phone, and officers found all the cash in his vehicle.
