WOODLAND (CBS13) — A suspect in two Yolo County robberies early Tuesday morning was arrested just before he was apparently about to try and commit a third one, authorities say.

Woodland police say a robbery was reported at 3:12 a.m. at the am/pm store along County Road 102. Then, just 20 minutes later, a second robbery was reported at a Chevron station along N. East Street.

Less than 20 minutes after the second robbery, Yolo County deputies spotted someone that matched the suspect’s description in front of another am/pm, this time along County Road 99.

Deputies stopped the suspect, identified as 23-year-old Rancho Cordova resident Isaiah Jamonz Evans, and soon linked him to the robberies. Cash and other items, including a gun, were found in Evans’ vehicle.
