Police are on the hunt for a serial robber who they say has struck several businesses in Montgomery County.

Police say the same man robbed a Salad Works in Horsham Township, a Jimmy Johns in Upper Dublin and a Giant Supermarket in Lower Gwynedd Township within the last 10 days.

Police say while the suspect never pointed the gun at any of the victims, he still made them aware that he was armed during each incident. During the Giant Supermarket robbery, the suspect handed a teller a note saying he had a gun and wanted cash. During the Salad Works robbery, police say he showed the two employees inside that he had a gun by his waistband.

“He displays the handgun to the clerk and demands the cash,” said Upper Dublin Police Detective Michael Commer.

Police also say the suspect has worn the same clothes during each robbery; a black jacket with the words “Sports Illustrated” on it and a red baseball cap. They also say the suspect drives a Silver Honda Accord, which was captured on surveillance video in the parking lot of the Giant Supermarket.

An armed robber also targeted a Dairy Queen in Upper Moreland Tuesday night. Police have not yet revealed however whether that incident is connected to the Jimmy Johns, Giant, and Salad Works robberies.

If you have any information on the suspect, please call Upper Dublin Police.
