Police arrest man in connection with suburban burglaries, robberies

St. Louis – A 24-year-old man was arrested Wednesday in connection with two St. Louis-area home invasions, and the robberies of a bank and a restaurant.

Police have not released the man's name. He is on parole for a previous robbery, and has a long criminal record.

Both of the home burglaries occurred in the St. Louis suburb of Glendale.

Police say the break in the case came when an employee of the bank that was robbed recognized the suspect as a former customer.
