After nine robberies over the course of one month, Florida deputies arrested the suspected 'Batman' robber, according to Fox 35.

Orange County detectives caught Juan Carlos Nieves Morales Jr. in a car in East Orange County on Monday morning. They say they plan to charge him in at least five of the nine cases. 

Authorities say in two of the robberies, Morales wore a Batman hoodie, and gained national attention with his style. 

Investigators say witnesses followed Morales after he allegedly robbed a pizza place late Friday night. They helped detectives find the suspect's cell phone leading to his arrest.

Sheriff Jerry Demings says Morales appears to have a $1,000-a-day heroin addiction which fueled the crime spree. He says this case shows how heroin addiction can cause people to commit potentially violent crimes putting innocent people at risk.
