TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - The Tucson Police Department is asking for public assistance in identifying an unknown male caught on camera in five separate robberies, stealing hydrocodone.

The robberies began in early February, with the latest robbery happening May 30, 2012.

Sergeant Maria Hawke tells KGUN9 the robberies have taken place on the south and west sides of Tucson.

In this most recent occurrence the unknown male entered the Walgreen's store located at 2411 North Oracle Road, made his way to the pharmacy counter and displayed a handgun to the store clerk. The suspect demanded and was given an undisclosed amount of oxycodone before leaving the store. In each of the four previous incidents, the manner in which the robbery was committed was very similar.

Video surveillance of the suspect was captured in each incident.

The suspect has been described as a Hispanic male in his late 40's to early 50's. He is between 5’05” and 5’09” tall and weighs approximately 175 pounds.  His build has been described as stocky or muscular. In addition, he is believed to have brown eyes, brown hair with gray mixed throughout, and a bushy mustache. In every instance he has worn a sweatshirt and jeans.

Anyone having information about the suspect’s identity is urged to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
