Dallas police have arrested a man suspected of more than a dozen robberies at North Texas insurance businesses.
Dallas County jail records show 30-year-old Michael Cleveland was being held Oct. 21 on charges of aggravated robbery, possession of marijuana and driving with an invalid license.
No attorney was listed for Cleveland, whose bond was set at $101,000. Police say Cleveland was driving Saturday night when he was stopped and arrested after failing to use his turn signal. Investigators say the SUV matched a vehicle captured in surveillance video from some of the recent insurance business holdups – 13 in Dallas and two in Irving.
The Dallas Morning News reported that Cleveland’s robbing spree began in July and mostly targeted insurance agencies. Dallas police in August asked for the public’s help in locating the gunman who walked into the insurance firms and robbed the people of money.
Several of the offenses were caught on surveillance video, which showed the suspect covering his face and waving a gun at employees, forcing them to hand over cash, the Dallas ABC affiliate, WFAA, reported.
