NEW YORK (AP) — New York City police say a suspect arrested for stealing a soft drink from a bus terminal newsstand was found to be armed with a loaded pistol and knife.

The suspect, 37-year-old Vincent Pierce of the Bronx, was charged with criminal possession of a weapon and resisting arrest.

Port Authority police say the incident occurred at 11 a.m. Thursday at the Port Authority Bus Terminal in midtown Manhattan.

They say officers were alerted to the theft by the salesman of a Hudson Newsstand.

Police say officers grabbed the suspect as he attempted to run.

They say a loaded .45-caliber pistol and a knife with a pistol handle were recovered from the suspect.

It wasn’t immediately clear if Pierce had a lawyer.
