FORT MYERS, Fla. - Fort Myers police made a quick arrest after a convenience store robbery Wednesday night.

Police were called shortly after 11 p.m. to the 3000 block of Cleveland Avenue where they learned that a man entered the business, implied he had a weapon and demanded cash.

He fled the scene on a bicycle.  The clerk provided officers with a good description and a short time later an officer and his K9 partner tracked the suspect's bicycle to Braman and Cleveland. 

36-year-old Daniel Dibiase was found hiding in some bushes in the 3400 block of Cleveland.  He was arrested and charged with robbery.
