A robbery suspect accused of targeting restaurants, including three Burger King locations, and other businesses along the I-94 corridor has been caught, WCCO reports.

A 34-year-old man was taken into police custody at his home in Sartell on Thursday, KARE 11 reported.

Authorities believe the man is responsible for at least six armed robberies from St. Cloud to the Twin Cities since early September.

The most recent holdup occurred Wednesday morning at a Burger King in Maple Grove when the suspect in a black ski mask calmly demanded cash, locked two employees in a walk-in cooler and took their cell phones.

He has not yet been formally charged, KARE 11 said.

The St. Cloud Times reports the man in police custody has a second-degree armed robbery conviction on his record after holding up a Sartell gas station in February 2012.
