Before officers can respond to the robbery, the crook got away with a “large amount of cash,” the Fountain Valley Police Department said.

On Tuesday afternoon, police received yet another call about a robbery taking place at the same location.

Officers that descended on the scene managed to catch up with and arrest the 33-year-old suspect.

The unidentified suspect has had numerous robbery convictions in the past, is being held at the Orange County Jail on $170,000 bail.
