CORPUS CHRISTI - Leonel Lozano, 35, is now charged with the robberies of two Walgreens, two CVS Pharmacies, a taxi cab driver and a home invasion in Corpus Christi.
Police arrested Lozano earlier this month for his alleged involvement in the home invasion, but waited for more information before confirming he was a suspect in the pharmacy robberies.
All of the robberies occurred within the second week of March, in an area border by Doddridge and Staples and Morgan and 19th Street.
Surveillance images from the pharmacy robberies show a man who threatened clerks at knifepoint during the robberies. He was seen in several of the incidents wearing a black and white 'Callaway' golf hat and red sneakers.
During the robbery spree, Lozano was arrested for a shoplifting incident in Calallen on March 10th. That's the same day he's accused of stealing a car during a home invasion and robbing a taxicab driver.
According to the timeline from police, Lozano allegedly robbed the CVS near 6 points three days later.
Lozano remains in the Nueces County Jail.
