NASHVILLE, Tenn. - A suspect accused of robbing multiple convenience stores in Nashville has been taken into custody.
Metro Police said they believe 30-year-old Keenan Cook was behind three robberies in less than two hours early Monday.
Investigators said it started around 5 a.m. when a clerk at the Exxon on Murfreesboro Pike in Antioch said Cook walked up to buy a cup of coffee.
When the clerk opened the register, police said he jumped the counter, punched the clerk in the face, took the cash, and ran.
Police believed the same man was pretending to buy a candy bar at the Mapco on Thompson Lane in south Nashville around 6 a.m.
Officers said he handed the clerk cash, then pulled a crowbar from his pants, threatened the clerk, and took off with $10.
Then around 6:30 a.m., police said Cook walked up to the clerk at Circle K on Nolensville Pike in South Nashville with two cups of coffee.
When that clerk opened the register, Cook allegedly shoved the clerk to the ground, took the money and fled.
Police said the clerk from the Mapco was able to identify Cook in a photo lineup. He was wearing the same clothes that matched the description from the other two stores.
Cook now faces charges of aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon.
