VANCOUVER, WA (KPTV) -

Three tanning salons were robbed Thursday evening and the suspect matched the same description in all three cases.

The first robbery took place at about 6 p.m. at Tan Republic on Northeast 114th Avenue.  

The clerk said the man demanded money and she saw a weapon, but police weren't sure if the suspect got away with anything.

Police searched the area and used a K-9 to try and track the suspect, but they had no luck.

About half an hour later, investigators said someone robbed Tropical Image Salon in the 105 block of Highway 99.

The Clark County Sheriff's Office said the suspect did not use a gun in that case.

Then at about 8:40 p.m. another robbery was reported at Sun Up Tanning located in the 2100 block of Southeast 164th Avenue.

The suspect in all three cases was described as a white man who was last seen wearing a black hat, green jacket and blue jeans.

No injuries were reported.
