Be On the Lookout


Police need your help to catch a serial armed robber.

He’s hit three Staples Office Supply stores in Brooklyn and Queens between June and this month. In each of these, he approaches a salesperson, pulls a gun, and gets access to the manager’s office where he takes cash and then makes his getaway.

The suspect is described as a black male in his 30s or 40s — about 5’11” – 6’1″ and weighing 170-200 Lbs.

Take a look at the surveillance video. If you think you can help, call NYPD Crimestoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS. You can also submit tips by logging onto or by texting 274637 (CRIMES) then entering TIP577.

You’ll remain anonymous and could qualify for a reward.
