ORLANDO, Fla. - Police continue to search for a man they believe is responsible for robbing at least four Jimmy John's in the Orlando area.

The latest robbery was reported Saturday night at the restaurant on Eastgate Drive near Conroy Road.

Surveillance video shows the robber enter the store and point a gun at the manager's chest. The man demanded money and got cash, but that wasn't enough, police said.

The robber then forced the manager to open the store's safe in the back room before he fled out of a back door.

Detectives believe the same man also robbed a Jimmy John's near the intersection of Semoran Boulevard and East Colonial Drive last week and another one in Altamonte Springs earlier this month.

"As soon as I found out about it, I was in shock," said Seminole County resident Marines Bermudez. "A bit scared because I work right next door."

Authorities believe it's the same robber because witnesses at each Jimmy John's location gave the same suspect description and said the man carried out the crime the same way.

The man is described as black, standing roughly 6 feet tall and weighing about 175 pounds.

Anyone with information is asked to call CRIMELINE at 1-800-423-TIPS.
