A suspect caught on camera robbing a Circle K near the UNM campus could be linked to a string of armed robberies in the area, according to Albuquerque police.
APD Officer Tasia Martinez said the suspect, a white male standing about 6 feet tall with a medium build and tattoos, entered the Circle K at 2019 Carlisle Blvd. on Monday just after 5 p.m.
The suspect then approached the front counter, pulled out a black handgun and demanded the money from the register. After taking the stolen cash, a total amounting to only $25, the suspect fled heading northbound on foot.
Martinez said police believe the man could be a suspect in other armed robberies in the area, but the investigation is ongoing.
If you recognize the suspect or have any other information related to this case, police urge you to contact Crime Stoppers at (505)-843-STOP or 242-COPS.
