SALT LAKE CITY -- Salt Lake City police hope the offer of a $500 reward will lead them to the man believed responsible for at least nine convenience store robberies over the past month.

"There's got to be someone out there who has information on who this person is, who maybe knows him personally and is aware of some of the dealings that's he's been involved in," said Detective Richard Chipping, SLCPD. "We ask that they just come forward and talk to us. They can talk to us anonymously if they prefer, but any information on this type of situation would be helpful."slc-serial-robbery-suspect
