HOUSTON—Crime Stoppers and investigators with the Harris County Sheriff’s Office are asking for the public’s help identifying a suspected serial robber.

Investigators say the suspect hit an Allied Cash Advance store in the 4700 block of West FM 1960 on December 22, and struck again at an EZ Loan store in the 13600 block of Veterans Memorial six days later.

In both incidents, investigators said the suspect entered the store, brandished a knife and demanded cash from the employee.

The suspect got away with an undisclosed amount of cash in both robberies.

Investigators believe the man is somewhere between 25 and 35 years old.

He’s about 6 feet tall and weighs 150-170 pounds.

Crime Stoppers will pay up to $5,000 for information called in to 713-222-8477 or submitted online at crime-stoppers.org that leads to the identification, charging or arrest of this suspect. Tips can also be sent by text message - text TIP610 plus your tip to CRIMES (274637). All tipsters remain anonymous.
