St. Louis County Prosecutors believe they have the man responsible for a series of armed robberies in North County this year in custody.
20-year-old Joshua Crosby faces several charges for the break in that started in February. Crosby allegedly robbed a Dollar General in North County then robbed a woman behind the store. Police connected Crosby to the crime using evidence from a series of other street crimes in the area.
Crosby was arrested in late February.
