A man who is suspected of 15 armed robberies in National City and San Diego was arrested Wednesday.

National City Police arrested Ricardo Reyes, 34, during a traffic stop on Bevner Court in San Diego.

Reyes is suspected of being the so-called "Frustrated Fan Bandit,” the person responsible for more than 15 armed robberies including motels, gas stations, convenience stores and fast food restaurants.

Reyes is accused of robbing two businesses Jan. 3 in University Heights and Normal Heights.

Agents labeled the suspect as the "Frustrated Fan Bandit" because he either wore San Diego Padres or Chargers clothing during the robberies.

Reyes has been booked into county jail on multiple counts of armed robbery.
