A suspect has been arrested in connection to a string of robberies across San Bernardino County.

The robberies all took place Friday between 3:50 a.m. and 4:42 a.m. The suspect was connected to three robberies at 7-Eleven locations in Chino, Montclair and Ontario and a Shell gas station also in Ontario.

He is being held at a hospital, where he was being treated for injuries sustained before his arrest. Once released from medical care, Noblitt will be booked at the West Valley Detention Center for robbery.
