Woodland police say a robbery was reported at 3:12 a.m. at the am/pm store along County Road 102. Then, just 20 minutes later, a second robbery was reported at a Chevron station along N. East Street.READ MORE: Suspect Arrested After Car Chase In Downtown Sacramento

Deputies stopped the suspect, identified as 23-year-old Rancho Cordova resident Isaiah Jamonz Evans, and soon linked him to the robberies.
