TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Tucson Police arrested a suspect  in connection to a string of Circle K armed robberies that happened overnight.

The first incident was reported around 11:42 p.m. on Wednesday from the Circle K store in the 5800 block of N. Oracle Road, followed by another reported robbery at the Circle K store location on N. Silverbell Road around 1:26 a.m. The last one was reported around 1:32 a.m. from the Circle K store in the 1300 block of W. Miracle Mile.

In each report, the suspect was armed with a handgun and demanded money from the clerks, according to a news release.

The suspect's physical description was similar in all three incidents. A Force Commander located a man, who matched the description, crouching down behind another Circle K store wall at 130 E. Speedway Boulevard.

Gustavo Paco, 28, was arrested just before 2 p.m. while armed with a handgun. He was booked into the Pima County Jail on three counts of armed robbery.

Detectives continue to search for a second suspect and vehicle believed to be connected to the incidents. No vehicle description was given.

Anyone with information is asked to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
