The Langley RCMP is investigating five robberies at North Langley fast food joints between December and Jan. 20.
Cpl. Holly Marks said police believe the cases bear â€œome commonalities leading them to believe they may be connected.â€ They occured at Taco Del Mar, KFC, Quiznos, and two Subways.
â€œOn each occasion, a lone Caucasian male enters the establishment and produces an edged weapon. He demands the cash from the register and flees on foot. Police believe he may, occasionally, have a female accomplice assisting by holding the door as he exits. On at least one occasion, he was seen departing in a dark coloured SUV or truck,â€ Marks noted.
The male is Caucasian, about 28, with some facial stubble and blond hair. Heâ€™s 5â€™11â€ and thin. The male being sought by police often wears dark clothes or grey sweats.
â€œAt each of the robberies he has usually masked his face in some way,â€ she added.
Thankfully no one has been injured and the only threat of violence has been the production of the weapon.
