FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a 27-year-old man turned himself in to Fort Lauderdale police after his mother recognized him in surveillance video circulated by detectives who were looking for a suspect in a string of drug store robberies.

A police report says Keith Fitzgerald Knowles Jr. told investigators his mother showed him the video footage of the robberies and he admitted that it was indeed him.

Knowles was booked into jail on Sunday and remained in jail Thursday with bond set at $45,100. He’s charged with robbery, theft and battery on a person over 65.

Investigators had released the videos showing a series of robberies at Walgreens stores across Broward County in June in hopes of tracking down the suspect.

Jail records don’t list a lawyer for Knowles.
