TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Robbery detectives from the Tucson Police Department and the Pima County Sheriff's Department arrested 31-year-old Aaron Littlefield on several counts of armed robbery on July 12, according to a news release. 

According to the release, detectives from both the TPD and PCSD in June began investigating a series of armed robberies at various businesses that involved a suspect described as a white man in his mid to late 30s. In several of the incidents the suspect was armed with a black handgun and demanded money from the employee at the register.  It was during the initial investigation that detectives learned of additional robberies with a suspect of similar description.  

The last armed robbery occurred on July 11 at the Jamba Juice at 7155 E. Tanque Verde Road. Officers learned that a suspect had entered the store and demanded money from an employee. According to TPD the suspect lifted his shirt and displayed a handgun in his waistband. The suspect was given an undisclosed amount of money and fled the scene.  Employees saw the suspect leave in a white passenger car, as it was leaving the scene, the driver struck several other vehicles and was seen heading west on Tanque Verde.  A witness was able to get the license plate of the car and gave it to police. 

It was the license plate number that helped lead police to the suspect. According to the release, TPD robbery detectives located the vehicle at an east-side business on July 12, and a short time later they were able to locate the suspect, identified as Littlefield.  He was taken into custody without incident.  

Littlefield was booked into the Pima County Jail and is facing the following charges from the TPD: six counts of armed robbery and one count of robbery, and is facing one charge of armed robbery from the PCSD.  

The investigation is ongoing, according to the release and additional charges may be added at a later date.  

Anyone with information is asked to call 88-CRIME (you can remain anonymous).
