TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - Tallahassee Police arrest a man just after he robbed the Super Lube on Thomasville Rd. at gunpoint. 

On Tuesday, Police were called to the store after an employee was able to sneak into a bathroom and call for help. The suspect left the store in an SUV after seeing the employee on the phone. A different employee saw the man remove a mask and was able to provide the license plate number from the vehicle. 

Thanks to this information, officers were able to track 48 year-old Bobby Wells down and arrest him a short time later. 

During the investigation, they were able to determine Wells was responsible another four robberies in Tallahassee, three of which happened back in November at Mikes Jewelry, the Starbucks Coffee on N. Monroe, and the Dollar General on N. Monroe. The fourth happened Dec. 9 at ABC Liquors. 

Wells faces five counts of robbery with a firearm.
