Biddeford police have issued a surveillance image of a person wanted for questioning in connection with a series of robberies over the past week, including another one that happened Tuesday night.
Biddeford police released this surveillance image from the Red Rocket Smoke Shop.
Police are investigating a robbery at D’Angelo’s Sandwich Shop at 352 Alfred St. that occurred just before 9 p.m. Tuesday.
Police also are investigating Biddeford robberies at the Family Dollar Store at 321 Elm St., the Super Sub Shop on Jefferson Street, the Red Rocket Smoke Shop at 80 Birch St., Tim Horton’s at 426 Alfred St., and the Yummy House Chinese Restaurant at 20 Alfred St., and a similar robbery at the Arundel Market at 1144 Portland Road.
In most of the incidents, a man described as 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet tall, who partially disguised his face, entered the business, showed a weapon and demanded money. He left on foot with a small amount of cash.
The surveillance image released Wednesday is from the robbery at Red Rocket Smoke Shop.
Police say Tuesday night’s sandwich shop holdup followed the same pattern.
Police asked that anyone with information call 282-5127.
