A pickup truck thief lost his stolen Chevy Silverado to an armed carjacker during a 7-Eleven stop.

Thirty-three-year-old Edward Bishop told police he stole the pickup Saturday, then, while sitting outside a convenience store, a man with a gun hopped in and ordered him to start driving.

The pickup ran out of gas and the gunman ordered Bishop to get out and push, but Bishop ran away and called police.

Officers spotted the pickup on Sunday and arrested the driver after a brief chase and crash.

A police spokesman says "you couldn't make up something stranger than this."
