August 7, 2006 -- Investigators with the Houston Police Department Robbery Division have released surveillance photos of a suspect believed to be responsible for as many as 30 robberies in Houston, Fort Bend and Harris County since March 2006. Many of those businesses are Dollar Stores that are scattered around Houston.

The suspect enters the business alone. He later brings an item to the cash register, and when the sale is made he displays a black, semi-automatic handgun tucked in the waistband of his pants and demands the money. The suspect takes the money, puts it in his pockets and leaves the location on foot. His target of choice includes Dollar or 99 cent stores and has been known to rob gas stations. He usually strikes on Monday’s between 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.

The suspect is described as a black male, between the ages of 20-30 years old, 5 feet 6 inches to 5 feet 10 inches tall. Several witnesses report that the suspect has a “Louisiana style” accent. From the surveillance images it appears the suspect has a fair to dark complexion. The suspect was described wearing a red t-shirt with white printing on the front, in two cases the printing was described as “Rocawear”. The suspect has also worn black, Oakland Raiders, football jerseys, the number 80 was described in many reports and at least one mentioned the number being 18.
