MEMPHIS, Tenn. —   A young man wanted in a string of robberies and carjackings was taken into custody overnight.

Angelo Bunting, 20, was arrested on Tuesday and given a $100,000 bond after he allegedly began his crime spree early last month.

Michael Mason says police have been all over his Whitehaven neighborhood looking for Bunting, and he was surprised to see him here.

“They’ve been riding through looking for him. I know they’ve been looking for him,” he said.

According to police, the first victim was carjacked at a gas station in the 4500 block of Millbranch on July 6. Several hours later, another victim was shot during a robbery at the Peppertree Apartments on Eastwind Road.

On July 9, the same suspect allegedly struck again, but this time he stole a car from the Family Dollar store on Neely Road.

Authorities determined Bunting was the one responsible for the crimes and released an alert to the public on Monday. The details surrounding his capture have not been released.

He’s charged with especially aggravated robbery, theft and carjacking.

Authorities said there is a possibility the suspect could be connected to other similar crimes.
