    COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP) — A Council Bluffs man has been arrested on suspicion of robbing several area businesses over a short period.

    The Council Bluffs Police Department says 24-year-old Matthew T. Koval was placed into custody Wednesday night. Court records do not list an attorney.

    Koval is accused of robbing a Walgreens store and displaying a weapon. He was apprehended outside the business.

    The Daily Nonpareil reports detectives were monitoring local businesses that they felt could be targets for robberies.

    Koval’s vehicle and home will be searched pending a warrant. He faces a first-degree robbery charge.

    Authorities say Koval is suspected of several robberies and attempted robberies over several days.
