Albuquerque Police say several Northeast Heights businesses have been robbed at gunpoint recently. Now they are asking for the public's help to catch one of the suspects.
Police released surveillance video to KOB Eyewitness News 4. It is from back in June at the Keva Juice at Menaul and Wyoming.
Police say the suspect showed the customers and the clerk a gun in his waistband and emptied the cash register of $47 dollars.
APD Detective Diane Dosal says that small payout is partly because the employees had listened to the tips she gave them.
"I've gotten with management to do robbery awareness training, that way we can improve what can be done inside the business such as keeping too much money in the drawers and surveillance video is the biggest thing," Det. Dosal said.
Det. Dosal said surveillance video from earlier this year helped them with another armed robbery involving a female suspect at the same Keva Juice.
If you recognize the man in the video, call Crimestoppers at 843-STOP.
