New leads in convenience store serial robber case, police say



ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. - Detectives have some new photographic evidence to help in their hunt for a serial robber in Orange County Thursday afternoon.

Authorities believe the man who robbed a Cumberland Farms earlier this month, then a CVS store days later struck a 7-Eleven in Maitland Monday night.

Authorities said the man has a similar look and similar build in each case and each time pretends he's going to buy something and then pulls out a gun.

Orlando police said he's an armed robber who struck the Cumberland Farms gas station on Bumby Avenue near Washington Street on Sept. 7.

They believe the same man robbed the CVS on Colonial Drive on Sept. 10.

Police said typically robberies just days apart indicate the man is desperate, which makes him dangerous.

In a photo, he's wearing a hat with the words "Kings" on the front.

The victim in the latest case said the robber pretended to buy a drink, but instead of paying he again pulled out a gun and even threatened to shoot her if she didn't hand over the cash drawer.

The man is described as about 5 feet 11 inches tall and 250 pounds.

Investigators think he may be responsible for more than just three robberies.

They're hoping someone will recognize him and turn him in.
