Officers responding met with a cashier, manager and witnesses who said a black man brandishing a handgun had stolen an undisclosed amount of money from a cash register before fleeing the store.
The man was described as being roughly 6 feet 2 inches tall with a muscular build. He was caught on camera by the store's video surveillance, police said.
The man is suspected to have committed previous robberies at a different retail store June 3 and Aug. 2, police said. In those robberies, the suspect implied having a weapon but did not display it.
