Suffolk County Police Department’s Pattern Crimes Unit is looking for two suspects involved in a string of armed robberies that began in late December—and a $3,000 reward is being offered to anyone with information that leads to their arrest.
At least 11 businesses—gas stations and donut shops—across Suffolk County have been hit since Dec. 22, police said.
Investigators believe two males are responsible for the crimes. Each time, a black handgun is used to force clerks to hand over cash, police said.
The latest incident occurred Thursday night in Sayville, police said.
The most recent robberies involve a male, medium to tall height, dressed in a black jacket, black pants, black hoodie, and a black ski mask, police said.
Investigators believe the male used an accomplice in previous robberies. That suspect is described as male, with a short build and dressed in a sweat suit, police said.
Citing the ongoing investigation, police said they will not be releasing photos or video of the robberies at this time.
The department is asking anyone with information about the suspects or the incidents to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-220-TIPS. Crime Stoppers is offering a $3,000 reward for information that leads to the suspects’ arrest.
