ROCKLAND COUNTY, N.Y. --  A New City man wanted for a string of burglaries over the past two months was caught by Clarkstown Police following a three-month investigation.

Luis Baez, 33, is accused of committing three armed robberies and one attempted robbery of two separate 24-hour gas stations in New City, wearing similar clothing in each robbery, said Clarkstown Police Officer Peter Walker.

The first incident took place at 2 a.m. on March 20 at the Sunoco, 128 N. Main St. New City where Baez allegedly entered the location, pulled out a knife and demanded money before getting away with nearly $3,000, Walker said.

The second incident took place around 4:15 a.m. on March 28 at the same store, where he again pulled out a knife and demanded money. He was able to get away with just over $850, police said.

On April 10, around 1:10 a.m., an employee was able to lock the front door when they saw Baez approaching the business again, Walker said.

His next robbery took place at 4:15 a.m. at the Shell Mart, 320 S. Little Tor Road, New City. Baez allegedly entered the location with a black firearm and demanded money. He was able to get away with more than $500.

Detectives have also identified Baez as the suspect in another case that took place on Nov. 28, 2016, at 9 a.m. at the Palisades Center Mall. Baez is alleged to have broken into a delivery van at the location, removing a gym bag that contained over $9,000 in cash.

Baez was charged with two counts of felony robbery, felony grand larceny, felony criminal possession of stolen property, criminal mischief and criminal possession of a weapon.

He is being held on $100,00 bail at the Rockland County Jail.
