Man linked to Mountain View store holdups arrested 

Police arrested a man in connection with a string of armed robberies this month, including one at a 7-Eleven store Saturday night, a spokeswoman said.

Derreck Stamper, 20, of Newark was arrested — after a police chase that traveled into East Palo Alto — when a K-9 unit and his handler, a Mountain View police officer, apprehended him, police spokeswoman Liz Wylie said.

Stamper was one of three men to rob the 7-Eleven store Saturday night, she said. The other two remain at large.

Each of the six robberies in Mountain View last month involved two or three men dressed in black and carrying small handguns, Wylie said.
