FBI believes recent armed robberies are linked to others in Topeka
The FBI has released new surveillance pictures from recent armed robberies in Topeka, saying they think they are linked to a rash of other robberies in the capital city.
The most recent armed robberies were on December 17th at the Phillip’s 66 near 21st and Gage, and on December 23rd at LoanMax in the 3600 block of South Topeka Blvd.
The other armed robberies the FBI believe the suspects are linked to occurred between July 2019 and November 2019, at several Dollar General stores, Family Dollar stores and gas stations.
The suspects are described as three skinny black men, from 5'5" to 5'10." They typically wear dark-colored clothes and gloves, and usually cover their faces with Halloween masks or bandannas.
In the LoanMax robbery, the suspect was described as a black male, dressed in dark clothing, carrying a blue/black backpack.
“These individuals should be considered potentially armed and dangerous,” said Dixon Land with the FBI.
Anyone with information is asked to call the FBI Kansas City Division at (816) 512-8200. You can also call Crime Stoppers at 234-0007.
The FBI is offering a $5,000 reward.
