HOUSTON, TX – The serial robbery suspect is wanted for at least six robberies in the northwest and southwest area. Three robberies happened at Cash Advance shops (two in one day, by the way), two were at a Kay Jewelers and a Zales outlet and a sixth robbery was at a shopping center.

The seemingly clean cut guy has investigators stumped.

“He’s not homeless. I’ve talked to a lot of my complainants and they don’t believe that he’s a homeless guy. He’s not dirty,” said Officer Kimberly Miller, with Houston Police Department’s Robbery Division.

Police say in each robbery, the suspect demanded money from the cashiers at gunpoint and then fled the scene. At the jewelry store robberies, he got away with several gold and diamond rings. In the latest incident, police say the suspect jumped into a woman’s passenger side seat as she was getting in the car with her kids. He then allegedly demanded money at gunpoint.

“He’s unpredictable. At first he’s starting at cash stores, and then he’s going to jewelry stores. Now he’s getting in people’s cars. I think he could be dangerous,” said Miller.

Hopefully the next pieces of jewelry this suspected thief will be sporting are some nice, shiny handcuffs.
