CHICAGO — Cops said they've caught the man responsible for a string of armed robberies as well as a carjacking.
Kent Stubbs, 42, of the 100 block of South Ashland Avenue, was charged with four counts of armed robbery, car hijacking and possession of drugs, police said. He was also ticketed for driving on a suspended license.
Police arrested Stubbs after they saw a car that had been taken in the first block of North Western Avenue in a hijacking last Friday, police said.
After a brief chase, cops pulled Stubbs over without incident and took him into custody, police said. He had a small amount of drugs on him, according to police.
Police found that Stubbs was wanted for a series of similar armed robberies, the most recent of which happened in the 2300 block of West Chicago Avenue in Ukrainian Village Sunday afternoon, cops said.
He also committed an armed robbery in 1500 block of North Central Avenue on Friday, an armed robbery in the 5600 block of West Fullerton Avenue on Sept. 23 and another in the 5600 block of West Roosevelt Road on Sept. 21, according to police.
Cops released a community alert on Monday that listed additional armed robberies allegedly committed by the same man, but Stubbs had not been charged in those incidents as of Tuesday morning, according to cops.
Stubbs is scheduled to appear in court on Tuesday.
