San Pablo police have arrested a man suspected of robbing at least two banks and a payday loan business in the city recently.

At about 5:15 p.m. Thursday, San Pablo officers were called to the Money Mart at 14473 San Pablo Ave., where they arrested 30-year-old Avaun Price as he was leaving the business, police said.

Price had allegedly handed a note to an employee at Money Mart demanding money and claiming he had a weapon, police said.
