Crime Stoppers and Harris County Sheriff's Robbery investigators are asking the public's help in identifying a suspect in what investigators believe to be a series of armed robberies across northwest Harris County, and one on Bay Area Boulevard in the Clear Lake Area.The suspect is a white male between the ages of 25 and 45. He is approximately 6'- 6'5" tall, 250-280 pounds, with a heavy build and a large belly. He has worn the same clothing on each robbery -- a black jacket, blue jeans, light colored shirt, light colored tennis shoes and black gloves. He also has worn a mask that appears to be a black head covering with a wrap around his face. He has been armed with a black semiautomatic pistol.

The suspect's vehicle is believed to be a white Ford or Chevy single-cab pickup truck with no licenses plates. It has a gray bumper and a black plastic bed liner. There was also a spare tire and possibly some lumber in the bed of the truck.

In each case the suspect entered the store, produced a pistol and demanded cash. After getting the cash he fled the scene.
