BELL COUNTY, Texas (KWTX) - Killeen Police on Tuesday announced the suspect involved in an armed robbery spree Sunday morning is now in custody.

Police did not identify the suspect.

On Sunday morning, Temple Police said the armed suspect robbed a store in the 8800 block of W Adams Avenue at about 9:30 a.m.

The suspect entered the store, brandished a firearm and threatened two clerks and two customers. He allegedly took an undisclosed amount of cash, personal items from a clerk and customers, and stole a customer’s gray 2010 Ford Fusion with license plate number KHC5437.

Later that day, police in Killeen said the same man drove the same stolen Ford Fusion to the Valero store at 4402 E Rancier Avenue. “The male entered the business with a handgun and demanded money from the employees,” police said.

The same suspect was reportedly involved a similar robbery in McGregor, Texas.
