Cooperation among area law enforcement agencies has led to a suspect being charged in numerous convenience store robberies.

It all started just before 1 a.m. on May 24, when a male suspect walked into a Royal Farms Store in the 7200 block of York Road 21212. He displayed a handgun and demanded that the clerk open the register. The man fled the store with an undisclosed amount of money and cigarettes.
