Crime Trackers: Serial armed robber arrested

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON- A serial robber was arrested on Thursday, according to the Pima County Sheriff's Department. 

Christopher Hunt-Taylor, 32, is accused of eight armed robberies since the beginning of August. 

In each robbery, he wore a camouflage mask and carried a black handgun. He demanded money from the cash register, then left the scene in an older model model Hyundai Sonata. 

A victim of one of the robberies said, “As soon as he walked in, he just had his gun pointed at me.”

He asked we not identify him, but he can't erase what happened on Thursday, August 10 just as he was closing the restaurant.

“I was just keeping calm, I asked him what he wanted and he said, I need all the money from the register. So that's when I opened the register and gave him all the money.”

The first robbery was on Thursday, August 3 at the Valero Station on North Thornydale. 

Investigators say he hit convenience stores and restaurants throughout the city, to include Marana and Tucson.

The most recent robbery was at a Subway near La Canada and River Road on September 7. 

After the robbery, law enforcement officials located Hunt-Taylor's vehicle at the InTown Suites on Ina near Interstate-10.

Officials carried out a search warrant and found evidence tying Hunt-Taylor to all eight robberies. 

Hunt-Taylor was arrested and faces four counts of armed robbery and one count of attempted robbery in Pima County. Charges from the Tucson Police Department and the Marana Police Department are pending.
