42-year-old Charles Anthony Burkhalter surrendered to authorities in Kingsburg.

Earlier this week police announced they were looking for Burkhalter in connection with a string of unusual robberies.

Investigators say Burkhalter is the man in this video. A suspect walks into a Fresno convenience store wearing a "Red Bull" shirt and poses as a representative for the energy drink company.

He tells the clerk, he's there to replace some expired drinks and removes several hundred dollars worth of Red Bull from the store.

The same suspect is believed to be connected to the theft of thousands of dollars worth of Red Bull drinks from convenience stores throughout the Central Valley.
