The Gates Police Department arrested a Gates teen Sunday morning in connection with a string of armed robberies.

Police say 16 year-old Keith Speed entered a pharmacy on Spencerport Road in Gates around 3 a.m., displayed what appeared to be a firearm, and then stole cash. Officers followed tracks in the snow to a house and took Speed into custody around 8 a.m and charged him with five counts of robbery in the second degree.

Further investigation led to four additional charges that allege that Speed entered several gas stations and pharmacies in Gates over the past couple weeks, displayed a firearm and stole cash. He was arraigned in Gates Town Court and taken to the Monroe County Jail.
