Police are searching for a man who has been linked to at least two armed robberies in the last month.

In both robberies, elderly men were followed from the Walmart on Deans Bridge Road after purchasing money orders or cashing checks. The robber was seen following the victims into and out of the store, according to a release from Richmond County sheriff’s Lt. Blaise Dresser.

The man was the passenger in a dark blue mini-van, which looks like a Dodge Caravan, and followed the elderly men home where he demanded money and items at gunpoint.

Anyone with information on the identity of the suspect is asked to contact the sheriff’s office at (706) 821-1020 or (706) 821-1080 and ask to speak with a Violent Crimes investigator. Callers may remain anonymous.
