NORTH FULTON, Ga. – An armed man is on the run after two robberies in the Crabapple area. He is wanted by police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. A $5,000 reward is offered for information leading to his arrest.
At 7 p.m. Sept. 30, the suspect walked into the CVS store on Crabapple Road in Roswell waving a handgun and robbed the store. The following day, at 11:13 a.m., police say the man walked into the Wells Fargo bank in Crabapple, near the intersection of Crabapple and Arnold Mill Road. He produced a silver-colored pistol and demanded money of the bank teller.
"We're very concerned," said Alpharetta Public Safety Spokesman George Gordon. "He pointed the gun at the teller."
The suspect is described as a white man between 30 and 35 years old, approximately 5-foot-9 or 6 feet tall, weighing between 175 and 190 pounds. He was wearing a dark Harley Davidson T-shirt, blue jeans, a dark cap and sunglasses.
He is believed to be the same suspect in the CVS robbery as pictures show he appears to have worn the same shirt in both stick-ups.
The suspect left the bank on foot. He is armed and considered dangerous. Anyone seeing him or who has information about him is asked to call 911.
