SAN ANTONIO – A man accused of leaving an H-E-B while eating something he didn’t pay for was behind bars Friday.

According to the arrest affidavit, Alex Vega Martinez, 37,  left the store in the 9000 block of Wurzbach Road and was approached by an employee.

Martinez then allegedly lifted up his shirt to reveal a gun and threatened the employee.

A few weeks later, the same employee recognized Martinez at another H-E-B and called police.

Martinez is charged with aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon.
