Police have arrested a man suspected in a recent string of robberies at several Subway restaurants, officials said Sunday.

Daitrim Turnbull, 24, was charged with several counts of robbery, including strong arm robbery and armed robbery, according to Hialeah Police.

Authorities said Turnbull targeted three Subway restaurants in a three-day span, between May 10 and May 12. Turnbull would allegedly enter the stores when few customers were present, wearing a hooded jacket and dark clothing with his face covered. Police said he demanded cash from the victims and, while a weapon was never displayed, he implied that he had one.

Hialeah Police said they worked with several other police agencies to identify Turnbull after learning of similar robberies at other Subway and Dunkin Donuts restaurants across Miami-Dade and Broward Counties. They were able to track him down and found him Saturday night at a Subway at 1437 NW 163 Street in North Miami Beach.

Turnbull committed another robbery and was apprehended after a brief chase on foot, according to officials. Police said they had to subdue Turnbull with a Taser before arresting him.

Police said they obtained enough evidence to charge Turnbull with three robberies in Hialeah, 1 robbery in North Miami Beach and three robberies in other parts of Miami-Dade County.

Turnbull is being held without bond in Miami-Dade jail. It is unclear if he has an attorney.
