Multiple robberies connected

August 8, 2005

Valdosta - Police are sending a warning out to check-cashing businesses in South Georgia and North Florida.

Last week, Title Pawn and Speedee Cash in Valdosta were held up at gunpoint. Police think the same men were behind both robberies, and 14 others that have recently occurred at check cashing businesses in South Georgia and North Florida.

The suspects' descriptions were the same in all the robberies. "We're looking at two, maybe three African American males, one has short hair and one has dread locks, and the one with short hair has facial hair on his chin," said Capt. Brian Childress.

Police say if you see anyone matching these descriptions or acting suspicious in your store, call 911 immediately.
