NORFOLK – Police are searching for a man they say robbed three local gas stations in recent weeks.

During the robberies, police say the man entered each gas station armed with a gun and demanded money from cashiers. Each cashier complied before the man fled the store.

The first robbery occurred on Sunday, Sept. 24, at 4:45 p.m. at the Fast Trek Citgo, located at 2335 Azalea Garden Road. The following Sunday on Oct. 1, the man robbed a Sunoco gas station, located at 4528 E. Princess Anne Road around 8:40 p.m.

The last robbery occurred on Thursday at 3:05 p.m., when the man entered a Shell gas station located at 3502 E. Princess Anne Road.
