Baltimore County police are seeking assistance to identify a man believed to be responsible for five robberies and four thefts at the Royal Farm Store, 6067 Falls Road, in recent weeks.

The robberies began Jan. 14. The most recent incident occurred at 1 a.m. Thursday, when a man walked into the store, said he had a handgun and demanded money and cigarettes. He took $35 and was last seen fleeing south on Falls Road in a white van, police said.

The man was videotaped by a security camera at the store.

He has been seen in a two-door hatchback car with Maryland tags BVD-069. He also has left the scene in a white van and has used an unlicensed taxi cab to flee.

The man is described by police as a black male, 20 to 25 years old. He is between 5 feet 8 and 5 feet 10 and weighs 160 to 170 pounds. He has a medium to light complexion, a full beard trimmed short and close-cut hair. He was last seen wearing a dark blue ski jacket with chrome-colored snaps on the left collar.

County police ask anyone with information about the man's identity to call them at 887-2198.
