WARWICK, R.I. (WLNE) – A man was arrested Sunday night after stealing a car and robbing a gas station in Warwick.

Warwick Police responded to the Seasons Corner Market at 2128 Elmwood Avenue for reports of an auto theft. An unattended 1997 Toyota Corolla was stolen while the owner paid for gas inside.
