Police arrest man suspected in 30 robberies of fast-food restaurants
Laguna Beach police officials have arrested a man in connection with about 30 robberies of fast-food eateries, authorities said in a press release.
David Brian Mattson, 48, was arrested last week after police said he tried to rob a restaurant, Lt. Jason Kravetz said in a news release.
At 8 p.m. Wednesday, employees of Jack in the Box on South Coast Highway called 911 to report an armed robbery had just occurred, Kravetz said. The suspect had pulled through the drive-through and pointed a handgun at employees while demanding money from the cash register, he said. He was eventually arrested.
Police interviewed the suspect and determined that Mattson is a primary suspect in numerous armed robberies stretching from Riverside to San Diego counties, Kravetz said.
