A man robbed three QuikTrips in Wichita overnight, and that was one too many.

A 21-year-old man was arrested after the final robbery at about 4 a.m. Saturday.

Sgt. Jeff Davis said the robberies began about 6:30 p.m. Friday. Police say the man robbed the QuikTrips at 5602 E. Harry, 12825 E. 21st Street N., and 2106 S. Rock Road.

The robber used a handgun and got employees at each store to give him money from the cash registers, Davis said. He showed the gun to the employees at two of the stores, but only indicated it at the store on East Harry.

The man was arrested after the robbery on Rock Road, and booked for the crimes.

Police on Monday will investigate him for other robberies, Davis said.
