Police have arrested and charged a suspect in a rash of recent robberies after being recognized during a routine traffic stop.

After being pulled over for speeding on Tuesday, January 3, officers identified the suspect, Gregory Kennedy, as the man wanted for a robbery of a T-Mobile store on Jamaica Avenue.

Kennedy was captured on camera around the corner from the store after the alleged armed robbery discarding a liquor bottle from a livery cab.

Detectives were able to recover the bottle and match the prints to Kennedy, and produced a wanted poster with his image.

After an investigation, the suspect was charged in a string of gunpoint robberies between October and December that allegedly netted the bandit over $11,000.

The 31 year old was charged with 11 counts of robbery in the first degree.
