Raleigh, Cary and Morrisville say they believe the same masked man held up two Circle K gas stations and a Han-dee Hugo's in the space of three hours this week.
An image of the man, captured when he entered a Circle K store on Davis Drive in Morrisville, was distributed Wednesday after detectives concluded they were after the same person.
The man in the photo is black and wears a black jacket and black jeans and has a black cloth covering much of his face. He did not show a weapon in any of the robberies.
The first holdup was at a Han-Dee Hugo’s at 103 SW Maynard Road in Cary about 2 a.m. The Morrisville store was robbed next, and a Circle K at 8500 Harps Mill Road in Raleigh was hit a little after 4 a.m.
Never miss a local story.
