Reward Offered For Suspect in Rite Aid Robberies

BUFFALO, NY - Crimestoppers and Rite Aid need the public's help identifying a suspect who has robbed at least three stores in Buffalo.

Rite Aid is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the suspect, in addition to a $1,000 reward offered by Crimestoppers.

Investigators say the first robbery happened November 16 just after 8:00 p.m. at the Rite Aid at William and Jefferson in Buffalo.  They say a man entered the store, went straight to the checkout, pulled out a silver gun, pushed aside a customer and demanded money.

The suspect is seen in surveillance video taking the money from the cash register before leaving the store.

The employee and the customer were not hurt.

The suspect is described as 5'10" to 6' tall.  He was wearing a full, black mask, black gloves and a long brown hooded sweatshirt.  The sweatshirt had a silver zipper.  He also had on faded black jeans and black shoes.

Rite Aid believes the same man also robbed the Rite Aid on Niagara Street on Saturday and the Rite Aid on Elmwood near Children's Hospital on Sunday.

If you have any information about the suspect, you're asked to call Crimestoppers at:  716-867-6161. You could be eligible for the reward from Rite Aid and Crimestoppers for information leading to the arrest.
