In Fort Worth, Michael Laurence Browne, 46, (right) is a suspect in a carjacking, attempted carjacking and purse snatching in July and August, police said.
In Dallas, he is accused of robbing a 77-year-old woman at knife point Thursday morning and is a suspect in four other robberies, including two carjackings, police said.
Earlier jail records show that Browne has been arrested on suspicion of theft several times in Dallas County.
But Browne was in the news Thursday afternoon as TV helicopter cameras showed a stolen pickup crashing through a fence at the airport, with officers in pursuit.
A Dallas officer rammed a patrol car into the truck and stopped it in a grassy area beside a runway at Love Field.
Behind the wheel (but now in jail) was Browne, police said. His latest mugshot appears above.
