A suspect in recent robberies in San Leandro and Fremont has been arrested in Pinole, Fremont police said Thursday. Melvin Landry, Jr., was picked up in Pinole on Jan. 26th, according to Fremont police. Landry, 21, was wanted in connection with an armed robbery and assault that occurred at the Albrae Street Walgreens store in Fremont on Jan. 3 around 9:15 p.m., police said.
San Leandro police were also searching for Landry in connection with a robbery that occurred at a Walmart store at 1919 Davis St. in San Leandro around noon on Dec. 3. Officers previously arrested one suspect in the Fremont robbery, 21-year-old Fremont resident Dominique Martin, but Landry continued to elude authorities, police said.

A weapon used in the robbery was not found with the car, police said.
