A man police say is tied to a rash of armed robberies in South Bend and Mishawaka has been formally charged.

The Saint Joseph County Prosecutor's office say 25-year-old Christopher Williams is charged with six counts of Robbery and one count of Attempted Robbery.

Police believe Williams robbed La Candy Shoppe, a Jimmy Johns, a Phillips 66 and Tiki Tan in South Bend and Jake's on the Square and His and Hers Store in Mishawaka, along with attempting to rob Burton's Laundry Service. Court documents say Williams admitted to all of the crimes, telling police he used a BB gun in the robberies.

Williams is being held at the Saint Joseph County Jail. He's expected to face a judge on Monday.
