The suspect is described as a white male, early to late 20’s, 5’9” to 6’ tall with a very thin build and a pale white complexion. The suspect may be wearing a long blonde hair wig that has been described as “dirty and greasy.” In several of the robberies, the suspect has carried various types of bags, including designer logo bags and wears designer sunglasses. In the video, he is wearing a dark stocking cap, long sleeve shirt and jeans. In each robbery, the suspect has been armed with a handgun tucked in his waistband.
A possible suspect vehicle is a black mid 1980’s pickup truck, possibly a Datsun or similar import. The truck is 2WD, with a black canopy that has rectangular tinted windows, and chrome hubcaps.
