Suspect Sought in Roswell, Cobb Robberies

The holdups took place on Sunday and Wednesday morning.

A man police believe is a serial armed robber is on the loose following holdups in Roswell and Marietta. 

Roswell Police released a surveillance photo of the suspect they believe robbed the CVS store at 1380 Woodstock Road on Sunday. 

Lisa Holland of the Roswell Police Department said they believe the suspect in that robbery is the same man who held up a Shell station at 2678 Windy Hill Road in Cobb County this morning. 

In the Roswell case, a white male entered the CVS store and demanded money and cigarettes from the cashier while pointing a gun at her. The suspect left the area in a green or blue older model hatchback vehicle with a white female passenger.

She said the suspect is described as a white male, between 5-foot-7 and 5-foot-9 and between 150 to 170 pounds. He has short brown hair and was wearing a black jacket with the Air Jordan red logo on the upper left chest, black baseball ball cap with a white logo on the front and jeans.

In the Cobb case, police say a man entered the Shell station shortly after 1 a.m. Wednesday and walked about the store. He made a small purchase at the counter and demanded money from the cashier when the register opened, Cobb Police Officer Michael Bowman said. 

Bowman said the suspect left the store with cash and other items and drove away in a black vehicle, possibly a Toyota with a back spoiler, and was last seen heading toward Interstate 75. 

Cobb Police said the armed suspect, in addition to wearing a black jacket with the Air Jordan logo, was also wearing a black baseball cap, possibly with the insignia of the Boston Red Sox or Detroit Tigers. 

If you have any information about the Roswell case, please contact Detective M. Larkins at the Roswell Police Department at 770-640-4448. 

Cobb Police are asking anyone with information about the Windy Hill Road robbery to call 770-499-3945.
