Crimetracker: Man charged in connection to multiple robberies

ALCOA, Tenn. (WVLT)-- Alcoa Police arrested an armed robbery suspect early Sunday morning.

Donald Lynn Biggs, 49, was charged with aggravated robbery. Biggs was also wanted for three other armed robberies in Sevier and Knox Counties.

Officers responded to an armed robbery at Kenjo Market Saturday on Alcoa Highway just after 2 p.m.

According to police, a clerk reported that a man came into the market and approached the counter to purchase an item. When the clerk opened the register during the transaction, the suspect pulled out a handgun. The man fled from the store on foot with the cash.

About 20 hours prior to the robbery, Sevier County authorities responded to a robbery. The suspect caught in the surveillance video matched the description of the suspect in the Alcoa robbery.

Biggs also faces charges for two other armed robberies in Knoxville.
