“It’s just about getting this person off the street before something negative happens,” said FBI agent Steve Skinner. “Although he has not shown a weapon, we take the threat that he may have a weapon very seriously. Someone in this community knows who this person is.”

No one has been hurt in any of the robberies. Witnesses describe the suspect as a white man between 45 – 55 years old, between 5-feet 7-inches to 5-feet 9-inches tall, with a medium build.
