BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Police need the public’s help to find a man accused of five robberies or attempted robberies in the last several days.
Arick William Fleming, 55, is considered armed and dangerous, according to the Baltimore County Police Department. He is described as having bowed legs and walking with a limp.
A robbery warrant has been issued for Fleming, but police have so far been unable to find him.
Police say Fleming first tried to rob the Royal Farms Store in Perry Hall on Feb. 16. He reportedly bought a donut, and as the cashier was giving him his change, he reached over and tried to grab money from the register.
The cashier was able to close the register before he got any money, but about 30 minutes later, he did the same thing at the Royal Farms Store on East Joppa Road in Towson, and this time, police say he was able to steal money from the register.
The next day, Fleming robbed the Royal Farms on Philadelphia Rd. in Rosedale. This time, police say he told the cashier he had a gun under his coat, and threatened to shoot the cashier.
On Sunday, police say he tried to rob the Royal Farm on Taylor Ave. in Parkville, but was unsuccessful. Police say he again threatened to shoot a cashier at that store.
His crime spree continued on Monday, when police say he took cash from an open register after buying a drink at the High’s Store on Broening Rd. in Dundalk.
Anyone with information on Fleming’s whereabouts is asked to call 9-1-1 or (410) 307-2020. If you see him, police say you should not approach him.
