Allentown police say the man who robbed a 7-Eleven early Sunday morning is in custody.

The incident happened around 5:40 a.m. at the store's  11 East Susquehanna Street location.

Police say 23-year-old Arden Scott became flustered when he didn't have enough money for the items he wanted to purchase. Scott then allegedly told the cashier he had a gun and stole the items.

Police say Scott then fled in his Mercedes-Benz before being pulled over by Allentown Police.

He's being held in prison on $50,000 bail.
