DURHAM — Police have released a photo of the suspect in a gas station robbery early Sunday.

State police responded to a reported robbery at Valero gas station, 384 Main St., at about 7:24 a.m., according to a news release.

The suspect, who was armed with a knife, is described as a while male, approximately 5 feet 10 inches tall, husky build, with a salt and pepper beard and moustache. 

Approximately $130 in bills, $20 in pennies and five packs of cigarettes were taken. 

Anyone with any information is asked to call 860-399-2100.

On Dec. 27, 2017, a man robbed Krauszer’s Food Store, 459 Madison Road. The suspect left with an undisclosed amount of cash and cigarettes.

Police believe the same man robbed a convenience stores in Killingworth and Southington the same day.

It’s unclear whether Sunday’s robbery is related to the robberies on Dec. 27.

"All resources are currently being utilized to capture this menace to society” said Selectman John Szewczyk, who is acting first selectman while Laura Francis is on vacation. “We will not tolerate individuals putting our public at risk."
