Suspect in series of Minnesota I-94 holdups arrested

MAPLE GROVE, Minn. — A suspect is under arrest in a series of armed robberies along Interstate 94 from St. Cloud to the Minneapolis area.

Police arrested the man Thursday. The Star Tribune (http://bit.ly/19RkKv1 ) reports charges have not been filed yet.

The latest of six holdups happened at a Burger King in Maple Grove early Wednesday. A man with a handgun demanded money and locked two workers in the cooler before leaving in a Dodge Durango.

Authorities believe the man also is responsible for five robberies in the past month along I-94. Two others involved Burger Kings, in Clearwater and Monticello, and happened hours apart on Sept. 19. The other robberies were in Big Lake, St. Cloud and another in Monticello.
