— Police have arrested 17-year-old Leroy McIntyre and have charged him in connection with three of five armed robberies committed in Fayetteville last week.

McIntyre was picked up over the weekend. He was charged with three counts of armed robbery and was released on $40,000 bond. Police say he robbed a convenience store Wednesday night.

McIntyre was scheduled to appear in court late Monday. No one was hurt in the robbery.
