There's a bold armed robber out there who has made a habit of robbing the same store every weekend. 

 He's robbing the Pittstop Convenience Store on Sylvester Road August 17th. He went in just before 6 a-m and pulled a gun on the clerk as she walked out of the back cooler. He forced her to the register, got money, and took off.

A week later, the same guy showed up again. He was wearing the same clothes as before and again accosted the clerk in the cooler. This time it was a different clerk.

Dougherty County Police Assistant Chief Jeremy French said "No shots fired, or violence there. But that is our main concern. The longer this goes without this suspect being caught, the greater the odds are we may have a situation where somebody out there gets hurt."

The robber is about five feet four inches tall and between the ages of 17 to 24.
