Police did not specify exactly where or when the robberies took place, but one of the surveillance stills they released is dated June 29.

The man is between 25 and 38 years old, about 6 feet tall and weighs approximately 200 pounds, police said. In the photographs police released, the man is wearing a black ski mask with holes for the eyes and mouth.
