ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) - Authorities have captured a man sought in a recent string of armed robberies at Atlantic City convenience stores.

City police say Hasin Dunn pulled a gun on officers when they tried to arrest him late Tuesday afternoon at a city casino. They say he then threw the gun to the ground before running away down the boardwalk.

The 21-year-old city man eventually surrendered to a city officer and her canine partner.

Dunn is charged in five robberies that occurred during the past few weeks. He’s also facing several weapons charges.

Dunn’s bail was set at $250,000, and it wasn’t known Wednesday if he has retained an attorney.

Three Pleasantville teens also face charges in the robbery spree. They were captured Saturday, shortly after the latest robbery occurred.
