(CBS) CANTON, Mass. - Police in suburban Boston say they have arrested a former employee of Dunkin' Donuts who they say is responsible for an armed robbery spree at over 20 Dunkin' stores, according to CBS Boston.

The station says that on Tuesday morning, officers from several agencies, including Canton and Boston police and the FBI, arrested 23-year-old Isaiah Murphy at his Dedham home south of Boston.
