CHICO, Calif. - Chico police arrested a suspect in connection to a string of armed robberies. 

Authorities have been investigating this string of robberies since December of 2018. During that investigation, they said they determined that Jesus Damian, 40, of Hamilton City, could be a possible suspect. 

Most recently, officers were dispatched to Sports Warehouse on April 20 due to reports of a man who stole a handgun and fled the scene. Authorities found evidence at the scene that linked Damian to the crime. 

Glenn County Sheriff's Deputies and detectives then arrested Damian at his residence in Hamilton City. 

Damian was booked into Butte County Jail on two counts of armed robbery, one count of attempted robbery, being a felon in possession of a firearm and theft of the firearm.
