Fast food robber suspected in five stick-ups

With five fast food robberies in less than three weeks in North Langley, police are eager to identify the suspect and arrest him.

Langley RCMP Serious Crime Section has assumed conduct of several robbery investigations with some commonalities leading them to believe they may be connected. said Cpl. Holly Marks.

Up to this point, the five robberies have taken place in the North Langley area at fast food establishments – Taco Del Mar, KFC, Quiznos, and two Subways, she said.

The first robbery took place at the end of December and the most recent was on Jan. 20.

On each occasion, a lone Caucasian male enters the establishment and produces an edged weapon.  He demands the cash from the register and flees on foot.  Police believe he may, occasionally, have a female accomplice assisting by holding the door as he exits.

On at least one occasion, he was seen departing in a dark coloured SUV or truck, said Marks.

The suspect is described as Caucasian, approximately 28 years old, with some stubble on his face, blond hair, approximately 5’11”, thin and most often wears dark clothing, or grey sweats.  At each of the robberies he has usually masked his face in some way.

"No one has been injured during any of the robberies and the only threat of violence has been the production of the weapon," said Marks.

Investigators are eager to identify the suspect and charge him.
