SALEM, OR (KPTV) -

Police in Salem arrested a man Sunday evening they say is connected to a string of robberies going back to mid-November.

Officers responded to a business in the 3100 block of Kanz Court Northeast around 8:20 p.m. after being called by security guards who noticed the suspect on the business property after hours.

When the officers arrived at the business they saw the suspect, later identified as 26-year-old Roberto Branden Baney-Mateos, who fled into a next-door business yard as police closed in on him.

A department K-9 officer tracked down Baney-Mateos, with officers saying he was hiding in the back of a utility truck. Baney-Mateos was then taken into custody without further incident.

As police investigated the case, they determined Baney-Mateos was involved in an earlier burglary at the Garten Services business on Salem Industrial Drive, as well as other similar incidents.
