Public’s Help Needed in Identifying Serial Commercial Robber

Updated October 2, 2014: Baltimore Police Department SWAT and members of the Baltimore FBI Violent Crimes Task Force arrested the subject, Kieran Williams (dob: April 6, 1972), last night at 1407 N. Potomac St in East Baltimore without incident. The Violent Crimes Task Force paid a reward to a tipster who saw coverage on the news.

The Baltimore FBI Violent Crimes Task Force is offering a reward for information that leads to the arrest of a man believed to have robbed more than a dozen stores in the Baltimore metro area since August 4. Investigators say in many of the incidents the robber approaches the register and buys an item and then pulls a gun from his waistband and demands money from the clerks.

Witnesses describe him as a black man in his late 30s or early 40s, about 6’2” tall, medium to stocky build, with a dark complexion and graying hair and goatee. The list of the businesses is below:

  • August 4—Radio Shack—5022 Sinclair Lane, Baltimore, Maryland
