Serial robber in police custody

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX - A suspected serial robber is in custody after a robbery in north Phoenix, but police think he knocked off at least fourteen different places in the past two weeks.

Phoenix police were able to apprehend the suspect at a 7-11 near 62nd Street and Bell Road.

Detectives say the man had become more aggressive in the past few days hitting businesses as often as two and three times a day.

The suspect was typically robbing gas stations and convenience stores during his crime spree.

He's been dubbed the PS Bandit because he would leave sarcastic notes after robbing a place.

His name or his photo have not been released because police are doing photo line-ups to link the suspect to other robberies.

Police say they plan to wait until their investigation is complete before releasing the suspect’s identity and the exact locations he robbed.
