Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) --  A craving for Pop-Tarts lands a Louisville man in jail. 

According to an arrest report, 18-year-old Leo Carson was arrested with a gun at a Dollar General on Dixie Highway near Oak Street on Wednesday. 

Police say the clerk called when Carson tried to walk out with a box of Pop-Tarts. The woman confronted him, and he told her he had a gun.  

Before police arrived, Carson reportedly told the clerk he wasn't going to rob her and even tried to pay for the toaster treats.  But once  police searched Carson, they found a 9mm handgun in the pocket of his jogging pants. 

He told officers he wasn't going to court and would get another gun when he gets out.

Carson faces a charge of carrying a concealed weapon.
