Investigators Search For Elusive Central Texas Criminal

Updated: Thursday, October 3 2013, 05:50 PM CDT

Investigators from across Central Texas are looking for a suspect in 25 armed robberies. They say the suspect has robbed several different types of businesses from banks to restaurants.

"Between Temple, Killen, Belton and Georgetown there has been an unknown individual that has committed at least 25 armed robberies," said Georgetown Police Captain Roland Waits.

Police say he typically hits when employees are opening or closing a business. When employees are opening up the business he forces them to go to the safe at gunpoint.

"It's apparent he's done some surveillance on it so he knows what's going on," according to Captain Waits.

In Georgetown, the suspect robbed the Dollar General store on University Avenue in August of 2012

Investigators say he hid as employees opened the store and then held them at gunpoint and demanded money.

Recently the suspect robbed a Burger King in Georgetown and took an employee at gunpoint along with other employees in the building. He forced the group into the walk-in cooler. The suspect then took the money and broke the employees' cell phones.

"What does he say to the victims in the businesses, he says basically, he's actually apologized, he says I'm sorry for doing this but I'm facing significant family struggles and things of that nature and I'm just trying to get by," says Captain Waits.

Police say he has become aggressive and started pushing employees to the ground. They fear he will hurt someone. They have not said how much he has stolen only that the amount is significant.

If you have any information regarding any of these robberies please call Bell County (512) 526-8477.
