Serial robber believed to be targeting Miami-Dade businesses

Miami-Dade police are searching for a serial robber who they believe is targeting numerous businesses throughout Miami-Dade County.

Police said the man is believed to be involved in at least six recent robberies.

The latest incident was reported about 2:15 a.m. Tuesday at a 7-Eleven convenience store at 18421 NW 67th Ave.

Police said the thief grabbed a beverage from the cooler, but then pulled out a gun when he went to the counter with the drink.

Police said the man pointed the gun at the store clerk as he opened the cash register and demanded money.

The victim complied and the robber fled on foot.

Another robbery was reported about 4:30 a.m. at a RaceWay gas station at 19851 NW 57th Ave.

Police said a man, who is believed to be the same thief, pulled out a gun from his waistband and pointed it at two employees, demanding cash and cigarettes.

The clerks complied with the demands and the robber fled on foot in an unknown direction, police said.

Authorities believe the same man is involved with four other robberies in Miami.

The victims were not injured in either incident.

Anyone with information about the robber's identity is asked to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
