LEBANON, OH (FOX19) -

Lebanon Police arrested a man accused of several robberies over the past month.

Robert Blevings, 50, targeted LaRosa’s pizza, Domino’s and The Black Barn market, according to police. 

On Tuesday, a suspect displayed a revolver and demanded cash from the Domino’s on North Broadway. He fled in a dark colored SUV and was taken into custody after a short police chase.

Authorities searched Bleving’s SUV and found a loaded .38 revolver and plastic bag containing cash and receipts from Domino’s.

Newly released dash cam video shows the arrest of Blevings.

Police were able to connect Blevings to two other robberies during a search warrant of his Deerfield Road apartment. Investigators found a firearm, clothing and property likely taken during the Black Barn robbery.

The Black Barn robbery happened on July 25 and the attempted robbery at LaRosa’s on July 30.

Blevings left the LaRosa’s robbery empty-handed, restaurant surveillance video shows. With a bandana over his face and gun in-hand, the suspect approaches the counter. Although no employees were in sight, the suspect waits at the counter for an employee to show up.

An employee finally notices the armed robber, the video shows. The suspect then backs away from the register and disappears without taking anything.

Police said Blevings admitted to the robberies. 

He was arraigned Thursday on two counts of aggravated robbery, one count of attempted aggravated robbery and one count of fleeing and eluding.

He is being held at the Warren County Jail.
