ATLANTA, GA—The FBI is once again asking for the public’s help in identifying a dangerous serial armed robber who has hit an additional four dollar stores and has escalated to violence.

In a recent robbery at a Family Dollar store in Lawrenceville, Georgia, on March 10, 2020, the suspect fired shots at an employee who was not hit.

Family Dollar is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspect.

From January 9, 2020, until February 2, 2020, the FBI believes the suspect was responsible for at least seven armed robberies at the following Family Dollar stores:

Nearly a month after the last robbery, the suspect robbed four more stores:

The suspect is described as a black male, 5’8” to 5’9” tall, about 150 lbs., and typically wears a dark-color hooded sweatshirt under a dark-color puffy jacket, dark pants, and tan-color Timberland-style boots.
