Dietra Lashell Lee has been arrested in connection with multiple business robberies in the West Campus area, according to a tweet by the Austin Police Department on Thursday night.

Wednesday afternoon, APD released a photo of Lee asking for information regarding her connection with the incidents.

On Jan. 19, APD and the UT Police Department responded to a report of an off-campus robbery on San Antonio Street, almost immediately followed by a robbery of the Subway in Dobie Mall. At the time, the suspect was described as being in her 30s or 40s, wearing a black coat and a black ski mask.

According to a KXAN article, Lee was also wanted in connection to the robbery of a Subway on Feb. 2 on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard.
