LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police say they've arrested a Louisville man after he committed four robberies in the same day.

According to an arrest report, the robberies took place on Monday, June 9.

Police say 31-year-old Justin M. Marcell walked into the Circle K on Bardstown Road, near Lancashire Avenue, and claimed to be armed. He also demanded and received business cash, according to the arrest report.

Shortly after 7:30 a.m., Marcell also allegedly entered the Subway on Shepherdsville Road, near Fern Valley Road, and again indicated that he had a gun, demanding and receiving the business' cash.

Police say just after 12:30 p.m., Marcell tried to rob the BB&T Bank on Dixie Highway, near Upper Hunters Trace. He allegedly gave the teller a demand note, told them he had a gun and demanded money -- but the teller refused to give him any, so he left the bank.

On the same day, police say Marcell walked into the Fifth Third Bank on Dixie Highway, near 7th Street Road, and gave the teller a handwritten note demanding cash from her cash drawer. The note allegedly indicated that Marcell had a gun and would kill her.

After he got the cash, police say Marcell ran out of the bank and got into a green Toyota, but a dye pack -- a countermeasure against robberies used to mark the money as stolen -- exploded. Some of the cash was dropped in the parking lot.

Police say they arrested Marcell just before 9 p.m., at which point he gave a full confession to the above robberies. He was charged with four counts of first degree robbery.

Officers told the media Tuesday afternoon that they quickly identified Marcell as a suspect they say committed five robberies back in 2006. Police say he had just recently been paroled on April 24, after completing roughly eight years of his 25-year sentence.

He pled not guilty before a judge Tuesday morning, and covered his face as our cameras shot video of him.
