A 20-year-old man suspected of robbing several restaurants in Long Beach and committing other crimes was arrested, police announced Thursday.

Detectives determined through surveillance images and recordings that Corey James Swayney was responsible for at least eight robberies between Sunday and Monday, according to a Long Beach Police Department statement.
