    A Canadian man thought he was getting a savory sandwich (not this one) when he stole two from a convenience store, only to soon discover they were fake.

    Fake sandwiches have come a long way in masquerading as the real deal.

    A Canadian man apparently learned that the hard way when caught swiping two plastic sandwiches Wednesday morning.

    At around 3 a.m. the man took the two fake breakfast sandwiches from a 7-Eleven convenience store, according to the Nanaimo Daily News  in British Columbia. When he realized they were made of plastic, he ditched one of the $70 models, absconding with the other to a nearby hotel, the Daily News reported.

    Police cornered him soon after and recovered the second sandwich without incident, according to the Daily News. The paper also reported that the store manager decided not to press charges.
