Opelika Police Arrest Robbery Suspect

Opelika police have made an arrest in the case of a "snatch-and-grab" suspect. Timothy Welch, 37, was identified by five business owners as the man who robbed them.

All of the robberies occurred within a week.

Each time, police believe Welch would try and buy something, then reach over the counter and steal money when the cashier rang up the purchase.
