A 43-year-old man has been remanded in custody after appearing in court charged with three shop robberies in Ipswich.
Kwasi Jacobs, of Grimwade Street, Ipswich, appeared at Suffolk Magistrates' Court on Friday to face three charges of robbery.
Jacobs did not enter pleas at the preliminary hearing.
The first alleged robbery happened between 5pm and 5.15pm on Thursday, July 15 at Betfred in Carr Street.
The second alleged offence took place around 8.30pm on Monday at a convenience store in Felixstowe Road.
A third alleged robbery happened at a convenience shop in Clapgate Lane around 3.30pm on Wednesday.
The offences are indictable only, which means the case must be heard at the crown court.
