This week Crime Stoppers needs the public’s help in solving a series of armed robberies that occurred in the City of Richmond and Henrico County.

On January 14th just after 8pm the Richmond Police responded to the Walgreens Pharmacy located at 1157 Azalea Ave for a robbery. The suspect entered the store and showed the clerk a snub nosed revolver and demanded money. The suspect then fled the store but not before getting the cash from the registers.

And then just after midnight on January 15th the suspect entered the Walgreens at 3715 Mechanicsville Turnpike and robbed them as well.

The suspect is described as a black male, between 40 to 50 years old, 6 feet 2 inches tall and approximately 230lbs and walks with a limp. He was last seen driving away in a white minivan in both incidents.

You can see a short video clip of the suspect on the Crime Stoppers Facebook page.
