Late Friday, police arrested a suspect in two robberies committed in consecutive days in Boise.

Boise police arrested Jacob Tyler Dial, 31, of Boise at a fast-food restaurant on Fairview Avenue in Meridian.

Earlier, police responded to a report of an armed robbery at the credit union in the 300 block of North 13th Street. Witnesses told officers that the suspect entered the credit union and demanded money. The suspect fled on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Police would not confirm the identify of the credit union. Idaho United Credit Union, at 333 N. 13th Street, is the only one listed in the 300 block.

On Thursday, a man entered a bank in the 1100 block of South Vista Avenue, demanded cash and left with an undisclosed amount of money.

Police secured an arrest warrant for Dial in connection with Thursday's robbery.

As of Saturday morning, Dial faced one charge of felony robbery and was being held on a warrant from the state of Idaho. Police said additional charges are possible.

Dial has an extensive criminal record. He was convicted of theft by receiving, possessing or disposing of stolen property in 2009 and for possession of a controlled substance in 2007. IN 1999, he was convicted of underage alcohol possession.

Dial also has numerous convictions for driving without privileges, driving without a license, failure to maintain auto insurance and failure to appear.

He is scheduled to be arraigned Monday in Fourth District Ada County Court.
