Kieran Williams has been visiting local chain stores like they’re going out of style. Unfortunately, his many visits to area establishments got the attention of the FBI. According to WBAL-TV, the Bureau arrested the accused serial robber for holding up five Radio Shacks, three Petcos, two Game Stops and an Earth Origin for good measure.
Williams committed a total of 14 robberies in the Baltimore area over the last two months at a dozen local stores. In addition to cash, the 42-year-old also made off with video games. No word yet if there was anything in it for the pets.
Police caught up with Williams Wednesday night in the 1400 block of Potomac St. in East Baltimore after an anonymous caller recognized his picture on a wanted bulletin. The Baltimore Sun reports Williams was involved a four-hour standoff with police, shutting down the neighborhood. Perhaps he was just stalling so he could spend more time with his new video games?
