Tuesday, August 26, 2014 - 9:05 pm

The person in this photo, who is suspected of robbing Walgreen's stores three times and being thwarted on a fourth attempt, is believed to be a white man with dark makeup on his face, according to Fort Wayne Police. They are seeking the public's help in identifying him.

The suspect is 6 feet tall, medium to slender build, and rides a mountain bike to and from the store. He produces a note asking for certain prescription drugs.

He is a suspect in the following three robberies and one thwarted attempt:

*About 11:40 p.m. July 11 at the 2410 N. Coliseum Blvd. Walgreen's

*About 9:50 p.m. Aug. 11 at the 330 W. State Blvd. Walgreen's

*About 12:20 a.m. Aug. 22 at 2410 N. Coliseum Blvd, but the suspect was scared off when employees recognized him from before.

*The suspect then left that location and went to the Walgreen's at 10412 Coldwater Road at about 1:40 a.m. Aug. 22 and robbed them.

The police asks anyone with information on the suspect or who may have been in a store and witnessed anything to call Crime Stoppers at 436-STOP (436-7867).
