Police have arrested and charged a suspect in a rash of recent robberies after being recognized during a routine traffic stop.
After being pulled over for speeding on Tuesday, January 3, officers identified the suspect, Gregory Kennedy, as the man wanted for a robbery of a T-Mobile store on Jamaica Avenue.
Kennedy was captured on camera around the corner from the store after the alleged armed robbery discarding a liquor bottle from a livery cab.

The 31 year old was charged with 11 counts of robbery in the first degree.
