Serial Circle K Robber Sought by Phoenix Cops
The Phoenix Police Department is asking the public's help in tracking down a guy who's robbed six Circle K convenience stores in just over a week.
According to the Phoenix Police Department, between March 4, and March 13, the suspect hit six stores in Phoenix, Mesa, Chandler, and Tempe.
The robber would walk into the stores, walk around selecting merchandise, and take it to the counter as if he were going to pay for it.

Rather than pay for the merchandise, the suspect would then pull out a gun and demand cash from the clerks as they ring him up.
After robbing the stores at gun point, the suspect fled -- a bright blue car was seen in some of the robberies, but it's unclear whether it belongs to the suspect.
The suspect is described as a light skinned Hispanic male in his 20s. Police say he's about 5-foot-6 with a medium build, and a mustache. During some of the robberies, he was seen wearing a gray sweatshirt and white Arizona Diamondbacks baseball hat.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Phoenix Police Department.
