LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The man charged in a string of robberies targeting older people told police he committed the crimes to get money for his drug addiction.

Robert Ray's arrest report states he made that admission after he was arrested on Saturday.

Ray led police on a chase before crashing the vehicle in a parking lot on Bardstown Road.

The other suspect in the robberies, Angela Rivera Chancellor, was with Ray during the chase.
