    A South Florida man who authorities say is responsible for nearly two dozen armed robberies in Miami-Dade and Broward has been arrested.

    Damon Londen Woodard, 26, was arrested Saturday on multiple armed robbery charges, according to jail records and arrest reports.

    According to ATF's Miami Field Division, Woodard, of Miami Gardens, was wanted in at least 21 armed robberies since September 2017.

    "You can run, but you cannot hide. ATF will aggressively pursue those who use firearms in the furtherance of acts of violence," the ATF Miami tweeted Monday.

    According to the arrest reports, Woodard targeted several gas stations and check cashing shops in Hialeah. The most recent robbery happened Saturday at the Check Advance at 2750 W. 68th Street, the report said.

    "We commend the tenacity and the devotion our detectives have to our community. Once again, because of their hard work and their resilience, this dangerous criminal has been taken off the streets," Hialeah Police said in a statement. "Hialeah Police detectives have yet again demonstrated their commitment in protecting our great City."

    A second man, 25-year-old Suwayne Hylton, was also arrested in connection with one of Woodard's robberies last month, the reports said.

    Woodard was being held without bond Monday, jail records showed. Attorney information wasn't available.
