A St. John's man is expected to plead guilty to a string of multiple robberies in the city over the last few months.

Andrew Carter, 27, is charged in relation to four robberies in January, and one in March.

Carter is also charged with using a knife and having his face masked during all of the incidents.

The robberies happened at convenience stores and gas bars across the city.

In addition, Carter is charged with one count of attempted robbery at a convenience store.

He lawyer told provincial court Thursday afternoon there is a strong possibility the case will proceed by way of speedy disposition, which usually means guilty pleas.

Carter is due back in court in early May.
