Police suspect new serial robber on the loose

Hattiesburg police may have another serial armed robber on the loose.

The suspect is believed to be same the same person who hit the Keith's Superstore on Old Highway 11 and the Fast Track Station on Oak Grove Road over the weekend.

In both instances, the suspect displayed a handgun and demanded money from the cashier. He is described as a black male, around 6-feet-tall, in his early 20s, and dark-skinned.

He is dressed differently, but police believe it may be the same person who robbed a Dollar General store on Highway 49 north at gunpoint Monday night.

If you have any information about these robberies, contact Hattiesburg police at 601-545-4971. This is the second rash of armed robberies in recent weeks. Police arrested two Waynesboro men in early September who are being tied to at least a dozen robberies in Hattiesburg, Laurel, and Lamar county.
