CONYERS — The Rockdale County Sheriff’s Office is looking for a man suspected of robbing the Starship Enterprises store on Ga. Highway 138 twice — once in June and again shortly before 1 a.m. Thursday.

Investigator Michael Camp said the suspect is also believed to have robbed Starship Enterprises adult novelty stores in College Park, Jonesboro and southwest Atlanta on multiple occasions since April. He is suspected in a total of 12 robberies, including three in the past week.

Camp said in some cases there were customers in the stores at the time of the robberies, and the suspect robbed them, as well. In all of the robberies the suspect fled on foot.

Camp said there were no customers in the Conyers Starship at the time of the robbery Thursday morning, but in the June robbery the suspect fired a shot at a customer who started to come in the front door of the business. The shot missed the customer but shattered the glass front door.

The suspect is described as a slender black male of average to below average height. During Thursday morning’s robbery he was wearing purple latex gloves, a black ski mask, blue jeans, a navy blue hooded sweatshirt and athletic shoes. He was armed with a revolver. The clothing matches the description of the clothing he was wearing in the June robbery.

Anyone with information about this robbery is asked to contact Lt. Sonya Cordero with the Rockdale County Sheriff’s Office at 770-278-8152. You can also submit an anonymous tip to Crime Stoppers Atlanta at 404-577-TIPS (8477) or at www.crimestoppersatlanta.org.
