Police are looking into a series of robberies believed to be carried out by the same person.

On Thursday, July 9, four robberies were committed on Fraser Highway in a span of 75 minutes.

They began just after midnight at a restaurant at Fraser Highway and 160 Street, then 10 minutes later at a gas station on 156 Street and Fraser Highway, then 40 minutes after that from a taxi driver, then just 22 minutes later, a convenience store close to the initial robbery.

The following morning, at just after midnight, a fifth robbery of a convenience store near the same location.

Police believe the same suspect is responsible for all five robberies.

The suspect is described as a Caucasian male, approximately 5’8”, with a thin build, and possibly skin blemishes and teeth in poor condition.

He was seen brandishing what was described as a black semi-automatic pistol.

Surveillance video has been obtained showing the suspect and a grey sedan, possibly a 2000 to 2006 Chrysler 300, used as a possible getaway vehicle.

“Our Robbery Section is working very hard to identify the suspect in this series,” said Surrey RCMP Cpl. Scotty Schumann. “Public safety is paramount and thankfully the victims in these robberies have not been harmed. They did the right thing by not resisting the suspect’s demands.”

Surrey RCMP considers this person to be armed and dangerous.  If you see the suspect, do not try to approach him, but rather call 9-1-1 right away.

Anyone with more information is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers, if they wish to remain anonymous, at 1-800-222-TIPS or www.solvecrime.ca.  Please ask for Surrey RCMP Const. Simran Grewal of the Surrey Robbery Section and quote file #2015-97302.
