Plainview Police Close To Capturing Suspected Serial Robber

Plainview Police believe the man suspected of robbing the Uncle's Convenience Store, at Olton Road and I-27, is the same man suspected of robbing three other Lubbock stores.

The Uncle's robbery took place around eight o'clock Wednesday night, and immediately afterwards Plainview Police followed the suspects trail. The suspect was driving a gold Lincoln Town Car.

That is the same vehicle witnesses saw a man drive off in after a Lubbock 7-11 store was robbed around 6 o'clock on the same morning. It happened at the 50th and University location.

Earlier Wednesday morning, just before one o'clock, police say a man walked into a Town and Country at 34th and Avenue Q demanding money. The man then fled.

Police suspect this bandit may have pulled another heist earlier this week at a Town and Country on Clovis Road. In that robbery the man pulled out a gun.

Police are looking for a black man, about 5-feet, 8-inches tall, weighing around 210 pounds.

Plainview Police are following up on possible routes the suspect could have taken to escape out of town.

If you have information on any of these robberies or the suspect, call Crime Line at (806) 741-1000.
