PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Police are searching for a suspect who has robbed at least two Plaid Pantry stores and another convenience store in Portland this month.

The first robbery happened at 1:39 a.m. May 7 at the store on the 7100 block of Northeast Killingsworth Street.

A store employee told police the suspect picked out some drinks from the cooler and approached the counter. He then put his right hand into his pocket, implied that he had a gun and demanded money.

He quickly walked out of the store after obtaining an undisclosed amount of cash and crossed the parking lot toward Northeast 72nd Avenue.

Police believe the same man robbed two more stores early Tuesday morning.

Officers responded to the Plaid Pantry store on the 6400 block of Southeast 82nd Avenue at 2:10 a.m.

An employee told police the suspect was armed with a handgun in his waistband during the robbery.

The same man is also wanted in connection to an armed robbery at KC's Mini Mart on the 14100 block of Northeast Sandy Boulevard at 12:51 a.m. Tuesday. 

The suspect apparently changed his clothes between the robberies early Tuesday morning, as he was wearing a white and black baseball hat and a blue sweatshirt at KC's Mini Mart and then he had on a blue cap and a burgundy sweatshirt at Plaid Pantry. 

The suspect is described as a white man, 6 feet tall and 250 pounds with a goatee. 

Crime Stoppers of Oregon is offering a reward up to $1,000 for information that leads to an arrest.
