The so-called "Fake Bearded Bandit" who robbed drugstores in the Los Angeles area has been arrested, according to police.

Authorities said 28-year old Maurice Davis committed a series of robberies that started March 21.

Davis earned the "Fake Bearded" moniker because a store employee said he wore a fake beard as a disguise in one of the robberies.

Davis has been charged with 11 counts of robbery.
