The images, captured at Starlite Convenience Store in Alberta, Canada, show the man trying to buy the Red Bull with a stolen credit card.

The man can be seen standing in line while drinking directly from the can while another customer makes a purchase for him.

A police officer then follows the man and also stands in line.

As soon as he is at the front of the line, shop assistant Clayton Stevens scans the barcode of the can and the man pulls out his card.

He wipes the card into the machine and, if that doesn't work, he tries to make a contactless payment by tapping on it.

The man puts the card in his pocket and takes out some coins.

Unfortunately for him, the card appeared stolen on the screen and Mr. Stevens was told to contact the police.

Mr. Stevens seems to be showing the police officer, agent Ian Scrivener, a piece of paper.

The officer then quickly takes off his handcuffs and puts them on the man's wrists.

Mr. Stevens said: “When he went to pay, it unfortunately came to the evidence that it was a stolen credit card and to call the police, which was pretty easy to do.

& # 39; I just had to show him the newspaper and he was more than happy to make an arrest.

Bijna I almost fell out laughing, I did pretty well everything I could not go laughing because he arrested him.

& # 39; It was pretty comical. & # 39;

The police were called to the area for a report of a suspect and the answering officer followed the suspect into the store.

The suspect has since been released under the conditions that he will appear in court at a later date, which is yet to be planned.
