TPD Investigating Similar Robberies Going Back to May 2012

[UPDATE] July 17, 2012- 6:10 p.m.

The Tallahassee police department says the man in the photos is responsible for two robberies of convenient stores in the city since May of this year.

Officials say the suspect robbed the Circle K off of Park and Capital Circle but are not releasing details about the second spot. Photos this clear are critical in stopping these types of crimes sprees.

"The more chances that we get where people seeing things we're hoping that our investigators are hoping that somebody will see these photos, recognize them and say, 'hey I know that guy,' " said TPD Officer David Northway.

In both cases, the male suspect approximately 25 to 35 years-old drove a dark-colored Chevy Impala, possibly a 2007 to 2009 model, from the scenes.

The Tallahassee Police Department is currently working several robberies which have occurred since May 10, 2012. Investigators from TPD’s Criminal Investigation Division have developed

In one of the robberies the suspect entered the Circle K at 2956 East Park Avenue armed with a handgun. He threatened the clerk with the gun and escaped with an undisclosed amount of US currency. The subsequent investigation has revealed the same suspect is likely involved in other similar robberies. The suspect is described as a black male approximately 25-35 years old with a skinny build. He was driving a dark colored Chevy Impala, possibly a 2007-2009 model.
