    San Antonio police have arrested a man accused of using a gun to rob four Valero convenience stores on the same day.

    Police earlier this week asked for the public's help in finding 19-year-old Joseph Anthony Paez. He faces four counts of aggravated robbery over the June 9 holdups at Valero Corner Stores.

    Nobody was hurt.

    Investigators on Wednesday said a tip helped lead to Paez. A jail official Thursday did not immediately provide further information on his custody status.

    The stores are owned and operated by Valero Energy Corporation.
