A man arrested for a series of Lubbock convenience store robberies, two weeks ago, is dead.

According to police reports, 31-year-old Jermaine Hines argued with his girlfriend late Saturday afternoon as she was driving her car. She reportedly wanted to end their relationship, but Hines did not. He then forced her to continue driving at gunpoint. The two stopped for gas at a convenience store. That's when the woman made her escape, and notified police. She then caught a ride and followed Hines to a home in East Lubbock.

Police arrived and found Hines standing in the front yard holding his gun. As officers approached, he took his own life. You may recall, Hines was arrested at the Satellite Motel July 20th, after stealing cash from four Lubbock convenience stores.

He was arrested at the same motel back in June, following a similar crime spree.
