LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - 20-year-old Andrew Pinkins was indicted by a Lubbock Grand Jury on Tuesday, charged with four different robberies along 34th Street.

Police say those robberies include:

Friday, March 30 at 9 p.m. – Family Dollar at 4426 34th Street
Saturday, March 31 at 11:20 p.m. – EZ Mart at 4426 34th Street
Thursday, April 5 at 1:05 a.m. – 7-11 at 3802 34th Street
Thursday, April 5 at 9:30 p.m. – Subway restaurant at 4923 34th Street

Detectives with the LPD Persons Crimes Unit determined it was the same suspect in the first three robberies and began focusing their attention on the area back in April.

On Thursday night, April 5, after reports of the fourth robbery, Crime Suppression investigators quickly located the possible suspect vehicle. This led investigators to a home in the 4300 block of 31st Street, not far from the Subway, where they found a male matching the suspect description.

Based on information gathered at the scene, the suspect, Andrew Pinkins, was arrested for the Subway robbery that had just occurred. After further questioning by Persons Crimes detectives, three arrest warrants were issued and served Friday afternoon for the Family Dollar, EZ Mart and 7-11 robberies.

Pinkins is currently in the Lubbock County Detention Center.
