TULSA, Oklahoma -

Tulsa Police say a man is in custody after they received calls of armed robberies at multiple QuikTrip stores about 20 minutes apart.

Police are holding Jonathon Irvin, 35, on two counts of robbery by force/fear after they say he took a cab and robbed two QuikTrip stores.

Police say just after 1 a.m. they responded to an armed robbery at the 220 North Gilcrease Museum Road QuikTrip. They say a heavyset black male implied he had a gun and demanded money from the register and two cartons of cigarettes.

While officers were investigating, they received another call of an armed robbery at the 215 North Garnett Road QuikTrip, just after 1:20 a.m.

When police arrived, they say a suspect matching the first robbery was sitting in the parking lot in a City Cab van.

Officers say they took Irvin, and the cab driver into custody. They say their initial search found no weapons, but did find two bags of cash and four cartons of cigarettes.

Officers questioned the cab driver then later released him.

Police also say a customer at the second QuikTrip confronted Irvin and attempted to block the van with his car until police arrived.

Irvin is being held on a $100,000 bond.
