One of Lexington's most wanted arrested

A man wanted for several robberies in Lexington was arrested in the Arby's parking lot by U.S Marshals.

27-year old Justin Morris was taken into custody by several undercover officers as the car he was riding in pulled into the restaurant's parking lot.

Morris is accused of robbing Microtel Inn and Suites on February 28th and C&C pharmacy the next day. In the pharmacy robbery, the man pulled a gun and demanded money and pills, while saying that he did not want to hurt anyone because he just returned from Iraq and had too much blood on his hands already.

Those who say they know Morris told 27NEWSFIRST Monday he made all that up and he did not just return from Iraq. They say he has a serious drug problem.

Morris is also being linked to several home invasions in Lexington and theft and counterfeit cases in neighboring counties.
