AMERICUS, GA (WALB) -

Police are looking for a man they say is responsible for at least three robberies in the city. Ricky Lee Ford is charged with one count of armed robbery and two counts of robbery by snatching.

Police say he was caught walking by a Chevron gas station shortly before stealing around $80 from a man in the parking lot. He's also charged with robbing a Family Dollar with a shotgun.

They say arresting him is their top priority. 

"In one of the robberies he did brandish a weapon and that is extremely dangerous at any time to the customers, the employees, and so anytime we get anyone off the street with weapons it's very, very, very important to us," said Americus Interim Police Chief Herman Lamar.

Ford is wanted by multiple south Georgia agencies. Call 911 if you know where he is.
