LEXINGTON COUNTY, SC (WIS) -

Lexington County Sheriff's Department detectives are seeking help from citizens in identifying the man responsible for committing numerous robberies at businesses in Lexington County, Cayce, West Columbia, and other surrounding areas.

In most of the incidents, the suspect has approached a cashier at a business under the guise of purchasing an item, according to Lexington County Sheriff James R. Metts. When the cashier opens the cash register, he has attempted to grab as much money as possible before fleeing the store. In some instances, the suspect has become violent when the cashier has attempted to resist the robbery, the sheriff said.

The suspect is a black male, between 5' 10" and 6' 0" and weighs approximately 170 pounds. The suspect was seen wearing a light blue baseball-style hat during several of the robberies.

Metts asked anyone with information about the suspect or the robberies to contact the Lexington County Sheriff's Department at (803) 785-8230 or CrimeStoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC. Citizens also can provide information anonymously by accessing the Crime Tip link on the sheriff's department web site (www.lexingtonsheriff.com).
