Police have released surveillance pictures of a robber wanted for holding up at least one bank and one gas station in Montgomery and Chester Counties.

Investigators think the same man has also tried to pull off at least two other heists since early August.

On August 7, 2010, police say the suspect, who was wearing a white towel over his face, robbed a Citizen's Bank branch on Lancaster Avenue in Devon. The suspect entered the bank and announced that it was a hold up. No weapon was displayed.

On September 1, 2010, police say the suspect, who was wearing a white towel over his face, walked into the Malvern Federal Savings Bank branch on Lancaster Avenue in Berwyn. The suspect fled the bank after being met by the bank's security officer. The suspect was seen fleeing in a red SUV.

On September 2, 2010, police say the suspect entered an Allegiance Bank on East Dekalb Pike in King of Prussia wearing a white towel over his face, but left the area after bank employees refused his entry because of the covering on his face and his suspicious behavior.

On September 19, 2010, police say the suspect entered an Exxon Gas Station on South Gulph Road in King of Prussia. The suspect displayed and pointed a black colored revolver at the clerk, demanding money from the cash register. The suspect was wearing a white towel covering his face.

Anyone with information should call Upper Merion Township Police at 610-265-3232.
