MENTOR, Ohio (WOIO) - A 28-year-old Mentor man was arrested Wednesday after allegedly robbing a gas station at gunpoint.

Mentor police said Derek Bryner walked into the Sunoco in the 8900 block of Mentor Avenue around 7:50 p.m. Wednesday and told the clerk he had a gun in his coat pocket.

After stealing cash, police said Bryner drove away in a silver Volkswagen sedan.

A short time later, an officer spotted the vehicle pulling into a parking lot in the 8500 block of Mentor Avenue and took Bryner into custody.

Bryner pleaded not guilty in Mentor Municipal Court Thursday to robbery and possession of criminal tools.
