Police Seek Identity of Convenience Store Robbers

     Burlington County - Over the past two months, nine convenience stores were robbed by what police believe to be the same subject. Numerous photos have been obtained from surveillance camera footage that show the same black male wearing a thin moustache and having an obvious dark scar or mole on his left cheek. With the help of the public, State Police are hoping to identify this dangerous subject and an accomplice who worked with him on several of these robberies.

     The following is a summary of the robberies:

     On October 1, October 14, November 4, 2003 - Wawa store at 1301 SH 38 in Hainsport Township robbed three times by same subject. During the second event, the subject brandished a utility knife and on the third, a hammer.
