MECHANICSBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

Police are looking for tips from the public as they investigate a string of armed robberies in the Mechanicsburg area since Thursday, with the latest incident happening Monday night.

Officials said a robber struck the Exxon on North Walnut Street around 8 p.m. Monday, and according to police he is the same man who has robbed three other businesses in the Mechanicsburg area.

Lower Allen Township police released surveillance photos from the B&H Mart in the 3600 block of Simpson Ferry Road, which was robbed at gunpoint at around 7:30 p.m. Sunday.

Police said the robber entered the store, displayed a handgun and demanded money while keeping his gun pointed at a store employee.

He was described as tall and thin, and was wearing black pants, a black hooded sweatshirt  with the hood pulled up, and some type of mask covering his face, police said.

Lower Allen police said they are coordinating their investigation with Mechanicsburg police because of similarities with two robberies in the borough.

The Lucky Mart on East Simpson Street was robbed Friday evening by a masked gunman wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, and the Pizza Hut on East Simpson Street was robbed by a masked gunman Thursday night, according to police.

Mechanicsburg police have released surveillance photos from the Luck Mart.

Anyone with information is asked to call Lower Allen police at 717-239-9676 or Mechanicsburg police at 717-691-3300.
