The suspect is described as a white man, between 25 and 35 years old, approximately 5'10"  to 6"2' inches tall with a thin to medium build. He usually wears a dark-colored or gray hooded sweatshirt, police said

Detectives are asking anyone with information on these robberies or if anyone recognizes the suspect in the attached photo to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-220-TIPS. All calls will be kept confidential.
