Police described the suspect as African American, in his 30s, 5 feet 10 inches tall, and weighs between 160-190 pounds.  He’s casually dressed, and wears eyeglasses.   The suspect has been linked to the following robberies:

Detectives believe that the suspect may be driving a 1990’s 4-door dark blue or black car with a hard shell tire cover on the trunk.
