LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A Louisville man has been arrested after being accused of committing several robberies.

Kamron Goff, 22, was arrested Tuesday after being identified as the suspect in several armed robberies in Louisville and Shively.

The first series of robberies began in late March when Goff entered a Circle K it the 5000 block of Shepherdsville Road, police said.

He entered the store with a revolver drawn demanding cash, according to an arrest report. Goff was identified as the suspect after surveillance cameras captured him wearing the same clothing shown on his Facebook page less than a week before.

On March 29, Goff and another suspect entered a Super 8 motel in the 4800 block of Preston Highway, according to his arrest report. Goff fired three shots and demanded cash, police said.

In April, police said three more robberies were committed by Goff -- all within the same week.

First, he was accused in the robbery of a Five Star Food Mart in the 9500 block of Cane Run Road on April 10. Goff was identified by a fingerprint he left at the scene when he jumped across the counter.

Officer also identified Goff at two Circle K convenience stores after similarities to the other robberies were reported.

Police said Goff first robbed a Circle K in the 4100 block of Dixie Highway on April 12. He's accused of entering the store and shooting a revolver in close proximity of a victim. He then demanded cash, cigarettes, and cigars as he told the victim he "was going to kill her," according to his arrest slip.

The second robbery took place at another Circle K location in the 1200 block of Taylorsville Road on April 14, officers said. Goff was armed, and entered the store with another man. Police believe it was not the same man from the March 29 robbery.

Goff has been charged with five counts of first degree robbery and wanton endangerment.

He was out on a $50,000 bond for a 2016 robbery at the time the robberies were committed. He's now being held on a $85,000 cash bond. Goff is due back in court on April 27.
