Suspect in two robberies sought by PTC Police

Peachtree City Police Department is asking for the public’s help in locating the suspect for two armed robberies last weekend.

According to Lt. Mark Brown, public information officer with the police department, it is believed that the same man performed the two separate robberies. 

The suspect is a fair-skinned white man, approximately six feet tall, weighing between 180 and 220 pounds and is of a medium/large build. He was seen in surveillance images.

On Saturday, June 29, a man wearing a light-colored, long-sleeve shirt, blue jeans and a black motorcycle helmet approached the cashier of the Flash Foods at 1001 Crosstown Drive, implied he was armed and demanded money. The suspect possibly fled on a sports-class motorcycle traveling east on Crosstown Drive. 

On Sunday, a man wearing a light gray/olive, long-sleeve shirt, blue jeans and a red and white baseball hat robbed the Pit Stop at 100 Petrol Point in the same manner. The suspect fled on foot into the Glenloch area afterward. In each incident, a weapon was not seen in his possession.

Peachtree City authorities are asking for any possible identification or information on the suspect’s location. 

The Peachtree City Police Department may be contacted by phone at 770-487-8866. Anonymous tips may also be given under “Crime Tips” on www.peachtree-city.org/police, by texting “PTCTIPS” followed by any information to 274637, or via the police department’s page on Facebook.
