Police Across The Metro Looking For Serial Robber
OKLAHOMA CITY - Police in Oklahoma City, Del City and Moore are on the lookout for a suspect caught on camera connected to a total of nine armed robberies.
Surveillance video from the Tuesday night robbery of the EZ Mart at SE 44th and I-35 finally captured a real good look at his face. He has been holding up stores all over the south side since the start of the year.
“The video from last night is very, very clear,” said Sgt. Jennifer Wardlow with the Oklahoma City Police Department. “We believe someone is going to know who this man is and we'll be able to take this man into custody.”
Police believe he is the same man who robbed the Dollar Tree store on SE 19th St. and Telephone Rd. in Moore two hours before the EZ Mart Heist.
“We had officers all around,” said Jeremy Lewis with the Moore Police Department. “He barely slipped through.”
Police say last week he hit the Food Mart and Dollar Tree store in Del City. And there is also surveillance video from a holdup he did at a Dollar General Store on SE 59th Street in OKC on Jan 27.
In each of the videos the suspect wears the exact same thing: glasses, a grey hoodie and a dark hat. And he always threatens the clerks with a gun.
“Obviously getting very bold striking numerous times,” said Wardlow. “This is somebody we consider armed and dangerous that we want to take off the streets.”
“It's fairly important we get him in custody as quick as possible,” said Lewis. “Because it appears he won't stop doing this until it happens.”
If you know who this man is, call 911 immediately. Or you can call Oklahoma City Crime Stoppers at (405) 235-7300. You can remain anonymous.
