MODESTO, Calif., Dec. 14 (UPI) -- Police in California said they arrested a man accused of robbing multiple stores while wearing a Captain America mask.
Modesto police said Aaron Gonzales, 22, was wearing a ski mask instead of the Marvel Comics character's mask Wednesday when he approached Rogers Jewelry while carrying a baseball bat, KTXL-TV, Sacramento, reported Friday.
Officers said police locked the door before the man could enter and he left in a Ford Focus that was soon pulled over. Gonzales was arrested and identified as the man who allegedly robbed the same store Aug. 13 and is suspected in several other thefts. Police said Gonzales used a baseball bat to smash a display counter during the Aug. 13 incident.
Police said a search of Gonzales' home turned up a Captain America mask and other evidence.
Gonzales was taken to the Stanislaus County Jail on theft charges.
