— Raleigh police are searching for a man who they believe is responsible for robberies at four Burger King restaurants this month.

Police said they believe the man is responsible for:

  • The April 17 robbery of Burger King at 1828 Rock Quarry Rd., which was reported at 12:20 p.m.
  • The April 17 robbery of Burger King at 3101 Integrity Dr., which was reported at 8:35 p.m.
  • The April 18 robbery of Burger King at 3500 Poole Rd., which was reported at 11:45 a.m.
  • The April 19 robbery of Burger King at 3000 Capital Blvd., which was reported at 9:50 p.m.

Police said the man is described as being 6 feet, 1 inch tall with a close-cut beard.

"I think you've got to be pretty ridiculous to rob four of the same restaurant, especially in the same neighborhood," said Anthony Minter, who frequents Burger King.

The string of robberies has left people in the community feeling unsettled.

"My mom used to say you could leave your doors unlocked, but now it's totally different," Minter said. "You gotta be careful and watch your surroundings, stuff like that. Just always be on your guard."

Anybody with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 919-834-4357.

    Come on George they don't want food, if they did they could always ask someone for food and most people would give it to them. They want cash for other things...

    I dunno, but the Burger Kings in the area I have been to at lunch "rush" are not that busy.

    I guess it's a good time to do it, since it's when they'd have the most cash on hand, even if they're not busy at lunch, it's still their busiest time.

    Two of these times in during lunch rush? How do you do that? Did he rob cashiers for money or steal food?
