RICHLAND COUNTY, SC (WIS) - Richland County Sheriff's Deputies are investigating another robbery at a Zaxby's restaurant and say this crime could be related to similar crimes at other Zaxby's.

Investigators say a man walked into the Zaxby's on Sams Crossing Drive on Wednesday, October 24th and pretended to place an order just before 8 p.m. When the cash register opened, deputies say the man pulled a gun and reached into the drawer for cash.

Deputies released surveillance video from the restaurant hoping that someone would recognize the man.

Investigators say the suspect may have driven away in an older-model Honda.

Two Zaxby's restaurants were robbed at gunpoint within three days in September.  The incidents were similar to this one in which the suspect pulled a gun and grabbed cash after pretending to place an order.

If you have recognize the man in the video, call Crimestoppers at 1-888-Crime-SC.
