Police have arrested a man they said claimed to have a bomb when he robbed a Tulsa convenience store early Thursday.

Officers said the robbery of the QuikTrip near Admiral and Harvard happened at around 2:30 a.m. 

Store employees told police Kenneth Wayne Mcvay entered the store and stated he had a bomb, while the second man remained in a parked vehicle outside.

After the clerk gave the man money and cigarettes, he left with the other man.  

Tulsa Police say several hours later, officers tracked Mcvay down at an apartment complex. An arrest report said the 33-year-old man  went into the ceiling of one apartment and made it to another unit where he crashed through the ceiling.

He took off down an alley but was captured by a K-9 officer, the report said. After being treated at a hospital, he was booked on complaints of robbery with a dangerous weapon, first-degree burglary and resisting arrest.

Police say no one inside the store was injured.
