Polk County Sheriff's Robbery detectives say they have positively identified and arrested 32-year-old William David Mounts of Mulberry as the suspect wanted in two armed robberies that occurred in Polk County this past weekend (Feb. 16-17).

Pasco County Sheriff's Office detectives spotted him around 3:25 p.m. on Sunday, February 17th in Lakeland and placed him under arrest. Authorities say Mounts confessed to committing the Polk County robberies at the BP gas station and the Circle K store.
