WEBER COUNTY, Utah -- Police are seeking the public’s help in identifying a suspect believed to be connected to several robberies along the Wasatch Front over the past month.

Seven robberies have occurred since Dec. 9 to Jan. 7, Ogden County Sheriff’s Office reported Tuesday. The crimes occurred in Ogden, Riverdale, Farr West, Clinton, Taylorsville and Centerville. The video above shows surveillance footage of a robbery that occurred at Domino's in Farr West on Dec. 13.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic man with lighter skin about 25 to 40 years old. He is also as 5 feet 2 inches to 5 feet 6 inches tall with a stocky build.

During the robberies, the sheriff’s office states, the suspect immediately brandishes a gun and demands money from the clerks.
