A 41-year-old woman suspected in five armed robberies in Clovis and Fresno over the past three weeks was arrested Monday, Fresno police said.
The robberies began Dec. 30. A lone woman with a handgun was described as the suspect in each robbery.
The robberies ended Monday when the same bandit robbed Kimbo's Donuts, 1047 B St. in Fresno, police said. She waved a handgun at the owner and customers, demanded money and fled in a car.
Patrons provided police with a detailed description of the getaway car. Moments later, a detective saw a woman in the same car pull into the Relax Inn at 1425 N. Golden State Ave.
The woman went inside a motel room and the gun used in the robbery was tossed out the back window, police said. She was later arrested as she exited the room.
