Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- A man is behind bars after being accused of robbing four businesses at gunpoint in eight days.

Police arrested Alexander Loukas after hundreds of dollars were stolen from the Bonanza Mini Mart, the Smoke Shop Express, a 76 gas station and a Chevron gas station.

According to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, Loukas wore the exact same outfit with large sunglasses during the robberies.

It was one of his neighbors who alerted on of the store owners that Loukas was responsible for the crimes.

Detectives with LVMPD located him at an extended-stay hotel off the Las Vegas Strip.

Because he was considered armed and dangerous, they called in a SWAT team to assist with his arrest.

Loukas has been charged with four counts of burglary with a deadly weapon, robbery with a deadly weapon and conspiracy.
