California man arrested, wore Spider-Man mask during multiple robberies: cops

A California man was arrested on Monday in connection with a number of commercial burglaries police say he committed while wearing a Spider-Man mask, according to police.

Detectives served a warrant at the apartment of Lawrence Cecil Smith III, 37, on Feb 10, where they recovered truckloads of stolen property at the residence valued at over $30,000,  the Los Banos Police Department said.

Smith allegedly used the mask a number of times to conceal his identity while robbing businesses that ranged from a school site, storage facilities, construction companies, and other organizations within the Los Banos community.

“A number of recovered stolen items have been identified and returned to the victims in these cases; and Detectives are continuing to match up [the] property to open burglary cases,” the department wrote on Facebook.
