Forty-five year-old Gregory Maurice Easter is so far charged with one count of aggravated robbery and one count of aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon.
His bonds total $1 million.
Police say surveillance video, descriptions and identification by victims links Easter to three robberies earlier this month.
The first was reported the afternoon of Oct. 16 at the Shell station on Northwest Freeway.

When asked if he needed anything else, the man reportedly revealed a black handgun in is pants waistband and replied, "Yeah, the money."
Three days later, the Shop and Go on 32nd St. reported a robbery around 11:30 pm with the robbery matching the description of the Shell robbery.
He also showed a black hand gun in his waistband.
A few hours later a robbery was reported at Murphy's USA station on Airport Dr.
The robber matched the suspect of the other robberies, and also had a black handgun in his waistband.
A witness obtained a license tag number and officers later located that vehicle parked outside the French Quarter Apartments and arrested Easter.
They say a search warrant was obtained for his apartment and car, and they recovered a black toy pellet gun and clothes matching the description given in the robberies.
