After running from the law for more than two months, Dimitri Storm, the Bay Area's most popular alleged robber, was arrested this week in Oakland, which, incidentally, was recently named the nation's robbery capital.
According to press reports, police busted 42-year-old Storm on Tuesday night in Oakland; at the time of his arrest, he was believed to have been using the alias James Prouty Rollston. He's been wanted in Santa Cruz, Marin, and Sonoma counties for his alleged involvement in as many as 10 vehicle thefts and 40 vehicle burglaries across the Bay Area since late March.
CBS News reports that Storm is now at Santa Rita Jail where he's been charged with burglary and resisting arrest. He's scheduled for a court hearing in Oakland on Friday.
Here's some highlights of his two-month fleeing spree:
Needless to say, police are happy to be done with this chase.
"It's a huge relief for our community and our officers," Santa Cruz sheriff's spokeswoman Officer April Skalland told KTVU. "He was running amok through seven counties...It was up to 10 cars he had stolen in one month and he would stop at nothing to get away."
