Police arrested the suspect in a Circle K robbery Thursday morning, when he was caught driving a stolen vehicle. The suspect is now believed to be responsible for two more robberies and a carjacking.
Police say that a male suspect, described as a black man in his late 20s or early 30s, stole an undisclosed amount of cash from a Circle K on the 6500 block of South Academy around 9 a.m. Wednesday. The suspect, who was armed, walked in and demanded money from an employee, who complied with the order. The suspect then left on foot.
The suspect, identified as 34-year-old Vernon McKinnie, was found Thursday morning driving a vehicle reported carjacked. McKinnie fled from police, but later surrendered. Police say McKinnie may be responsible for the carjacking, the robbery at the Circle K, and robberies at a Loaf n' Jug and Dunkin Donuts, all on Wednesday.
