Teen suspected of at least five robberies charged

PALM BEACH COUNTY, FL (WFLX) - A teen suspected in at least five robberies, including a robbery at a Boca Raton post office, is under arrest.

A victim identified the 15-year-old as one of two people who forced him to take money out of a Boca Raton ATM.

When detectives fingerprinted the teen, they say, his prints matched at least one of the people wanted for the February robbery of two post office employees. Detectives say the teen also admitted to robbing a Palm Tran bus employee and several other robberies.

The juvenile faces charges of armed robbery and kidnapping. Police are also trying to determine if he is linked to any other crimes in the surrounding area.

Police say he also identified an accomplice in the post office robbery. It's unclear if that person is in custody.
