Police ask for help identifying grocery store armed robber

CONYERS - Conyers Police Department investigators are asking for the public's help in identifying a serial armed robber who struck a Publix grocery store Tuesday morning.

The suspect is described as a light complexioned black male, average height, medium build who was wearing blue jeans and a long sleeved button down shirt.

According to CPD Capt. Jack Dunn, the suspect entered the Publix at 159 Ga. Hwy 20 north, across from Fred's department store and the hospital, around 10:20 a.m.

"He loitered around customer service until there were no customers, displayed the handgun, and demanded money," said Dunn.

The employee put money into a plastic grocery bag and the suspect fled on foot.

Investigators are asking the public to call if they saw a man matching that description getting into a vehicle. Anyone with information on the suspect is asked to call Capt. Dunn at 770-929-4211.

The man is believed to be a serial armed robber who has struck Kroger and Publix grocery stores around the metro area.
