Phoenix police have arrested a woman suspected in at least six armed robberies in the city this month.

Gia Spicer, 28, was arrested Sunday morning, Phoenix police said.

Spicer is suspected of robbing multiple businesses since May 14, including two Circle K gas stations and one Subway restaurant. 

The woman’s arrest came after police responded to a trespassing call near 23rd Ave. and Bell Road on Sunday morning.

An officer recognized Spicer from her clothing and a description that was put out previously by Phoenix police, which included surveillance video and pictures released publicly, officials said.

When the officer contacted the woman, she was armed with a replica handgun, according to Sgt. Vince Lewis of the Phoenix Police Department. 

In surveillance video of one of the robberies, the suspect could be seen entering the business, displaying a weapon and taking money from an employee before leaving. Police said that same pattern occurred in the other robberies.

Spicer was booked for investigation of six counts of armed robbery, as well as other charges including kidnapping, aggravated assault, and commercial burglary, Lewis said.
