MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A 33-year-old man is accused of robbing the same Minneapolis convenience store five times in two months.
The Star Tribune reports that Jamye Davis faces five separate counts of first-degree aggravated robbery. He was arrested during his latest heist Dec. 23, after a store clerk signaled officers who had been watching the 8th Street Market.
Police say Davis admitted to the robberies after being arrested, telling investigators he used a fake gun each time. He allegedly colored the gun's plastic orange tip to make it look real.
The robberies occurred on Nov. 19, Dec. 10, Dec. 18, Dec. 21 and Dec. 23. Police say each time he wore a blue coat or sweatshirt, a beanie hat and a bandanna over his face.
It wasn't clear if Davis had an attorney.
