A man suspected of two armed robberies that happened a week apart remains at large, police said.
The Metropolitan Police Department is looking for a white man in his 50s or 60s believed to be responsible for a Jan. 30 robbery of a drugstore on the 8100 block of Las Vegas Boulevard South. The man robbed the clerk about 2 p.m. in the store’s gaming area, brandishing a black semi-automatic handgun, Metro said in a statement.
The same man is suspected of robbing a bank at gunpoint Monday on the 3700 block of East Flamingo about 4:30 p.m., Metro said. He slipped a note demanding money to a teller.
The thinly built suspect, who is approximately 6 feet tall and has a white beard, fled the scene of both robberies before police arrived.
Anyone with information on the suspect’s whereabouts or the robberies may call Metro’s robbery section at 702-828-3591 or Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
