Four days, three armed robberies in Lake City

Over the last four days, three Lake City businesses have been robbed. Starbucks near 145th was robbed on Christmas Eve, Jack in the Box was robbed early Monday morning, and Radio Shack was robbed Monday night about 8:50 p.m.

In the Radio Shack robbery the robber was described as wearing a mask, a backpack, a hoodie and blue jeans.

In the Jack in the Box robbery he was described as 6 feet, 2 inches tall with a slim build and wore a motorcycle helmet with a dark shield, a dark leather jacket, dark backpack, blue sweatshirt and blue jeans.

And in the Starbucks robbery he carried a backpack and escaped on a blue and white motorcycle.

In each case the robber was described as a white male.

Police are unsure if all three robberies are connected.

A suspect was arrested early Tuesday morning during a traffic stop on NE 130th Street near 8th Avenue NE. Police say the arrested man may be related to some of the robberies.
