Albany police are looking for two men suspected of several recent armed robberies.

ALBANY, Ga. -- Several recent armed robberies at convenience stores and on the streets of Albany may have been carried out by the same man, or not.

Witnesses to the robberies met with Marla Lawson, a Georgia Bureau of Investigation sketch artist, and two similar pictures came from separate sessions Wednesday.

"We need the community to please help us identify this man," said Albany Police Department Investigator Shemika Foster. "Witnesses from three convenience store robberies cooperated with the artist."

The sketch from the convenience-store robberies that started Feb. 28 showed enough of a resemblance to the sketch of another armed robber that Detective Charlie Roberts said they could be the same man.

The sketch of the gunman from a 2:20 a.m. Wednesday armed robbery on the 2200 block of Gordon Avenue showed a black man wearing a hoodie. The man in the sketch had a gap in his top front teeth.

The sketch of the gunman from the convenience store robberies showed a close-mouthed black man with a slightly wider nose, who still resembled the hoodie- wearing gunman.

Whether it is one man or two or more carrying out the armed robberies, Albany police would like the community to watch out for and call about anyone resembling the sketches.

Anyone with additional information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (229) 436-TIPS (8477) or investigations at (229) 431-3288. The Spanish-speaking APD-COP Tip Line is (229) 434-2677.
