UPDATE: Green Bay police arrest man in string of armed robberies

GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - Green Bay police say a man has confessed to four armed robberies over the past week.

Authorities arrested 20-year-old John McCabe following the latest armed robber around 4:30 a.m. Tuesday at the Walgreens on East Mason Street and Baird.

A man wearing a bandana had walked into the store and robbed it, using what was described as a black handgun.

A witness saw the man running away from the scene and officers began searching. They found a man who matched the physical description given by a store employee, but who was wearing different clothes.

Officers became suspicious when they found the man’s vehicle parked to the north of the store, and took him in for questioning.

During the interview, McCabe admitted robbing the Walgreens. He led investigators to some woods along the East River, where they found the clothes worn during the robbery, an air soft gun, and money stolen from Walgreens.

Police say McCabe also confessed to three robberies last Thursday and Friday, at the Lombardi Express on S. Ashland Ave., the Oneida One Stop on W. Mason St. in Oneida and the Shell gas station on Allouez Ave. in Bellevue.

McCabe has not been formally charged with any crime. No court appearance has been scheduled.
