DENVER (CBS4) – A man accused of a series of robberies within the last several weeks has been formally charged.

According to Lynn Kimbrough with the district attorney’s office, Darius Ray, 21, has been charged with aggravated robbery, second-degree kidnapping and two counts of crimes of violence.

“The charges allege that between March 20 and May 15 Ray robbed two convenience stores and a liquor store at gunpoint,” Kimbrough said in a statement. “No arrests were made at the time, but Ray was identified as a suspect and taken into custody after he was pulled over for a traffic violation on June 29.”

Denver police nicknamed the robber the Big Mac Bandit because he was armed with a Mac 10 submachine gun. Surveillance video was released last month showing one of the robberies.

Ray remains in custody on a $50,000 bond. He is scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday for his second advisement on the charges.
