Investigators need your help to identify a suspect believed to be behind a series of armed robberies at businesses across Harris County. It's believed the suspect is responsible for at least eight robberies in the Houston area, including five in January and three since June 19. In each case, the suspect enters the store in the early morning hours wearing a black cloth wrapped around his face like a mask and a black cap. He produces a pistol and demands cash.

After getting the cash, he leaves the store in a white Ford or Chevy single cab pickup truck with no licenses plates. The truck has a gray bumper and a black plastic bed liner.

The suspect is a white male between the ages of 40 and 50. He is approximately 6' to 6'5" tall, and between 280 to 350 pounds, with a heavy build and a large belly. He has blonde hair and blue eyes. He has been armed with a black semiautomatic pistol.

Crime Stoppers will pay up to $5,000 for any information called in to the 713-222-8477 tips hotline or submitted online at www.crime-stoppers.org that leads to the identification, charging or arrest of this suspect. All tipsters remain anonymous.
