Mobile police arrest accused serial robber, crime caught on surveillance video
Suspect charged in 2 armed store robberies
MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - Mobile police arrested a 26-year-old man accused of robbing two stores at gunpoint within minutes of each other earlier this week.
Authorities identified Zedrick Raymond of Mobile as the suspect in two of three robberies that happened Monday.
Raymond was booked into Mobile County Metro Jail Saturday afternoon. He is charged with two counts of first-degree robbery.
According to police, the first occurred shortly before 8 p.m. at the Chevron Gas Station at 139 S. Sage Ave.
The suspect entered the store armed with a gun, demanded money from the cash register, then fled on foot after getting the cash, police said.
The robbery which was captured on surveillance video shows the moment the suspect walked into the store.
An employee at the store says the suspect demanded he go behind the counter, where he appears to take more money.
The employee tells FOX 10 News the suspect got away with several hundred dollars.
Then, around 8:30 p.m., police say the same armed suspect entered Food Mart at 1030 Leroy Stevens Rd., demanded money from the cash register, then fled with the loot, according to police.
Police didn’t say if any money was taken from this location.
Raymond’s bond hearing is scheduled for Tuesday.
