ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -- Police are asking for the public's help in identifying a man who they say has robbed three Walgreens stores in south St. Louis within the last week.

In the latest incident, authorities say a male suspect robbed a Walgreens store in the 5500 block of South Grand around 11 a.m.

He is the same man, according to police, who robbed two other Walgreens stores earlier in the week.

On Wednesday, officials say the suspect walked into a Walgreens in the 3800 block of S. Kingshighway around 9:45 p.m. The suspect reportedly told the clerk, “Give me all the money, before I have to use this,” and lifted the front of his shirt to reveal a gun.

Two days earlier, authorities say the same suspect displayed a pistol while robbing a Walgreens store in the 7300 block of Gravois around 6:50 a.m.

The suspect is described as a 5'6" white male, age 18 to 25, and weighing about 145 pounds.

Anyone with information is asked to contact CrimeStoppers at 866-371-TIPS or the SLMPD at 314-444-0100.
