Stillwater Police distribute wanted poster for cash-and-dash bandit

STILLWATER, Okla. — Stillwater Police have distributed wanted posters for the cash-and-dash bandit throughout the city and to other law enforcement agencies in Oklahoma and border states, a police spokesman said Monday.

The wanted poster includes color security cam photos from Friday’s armed robbery of the Check ’n Go, 211 N. Perkins Road. The photos provide the clearest picture to date of the cash-and-dash bandit, who has robbed 11 businesses in Stillwater and one in Perkins since January.

Some businesses around Stillwater have taped the wanted poster on their doors.

“We have them out everywhere in town,” Stillwater Police Capt. Randy Dickerson said.

The poster outlines the $5,000 reward for information leading to arrest and conviction of the suspect, who is described as armed and dangerous.

The bandit is a black male between the heights of 5 feet, 6 inches and 5 feet, 10 inches tall. He is of thin or medium build.

The poster asked anyone with information about the robberies to contact the Stillwater Police Department at 405-372-4171 or the anonymous tip line at 405-742-8327.

The cash-and-dash bandit has worn a variety of disguises and wields a handgun during the string of robberies. He primarily has struck convenience stores and cash advance businesses. He has robbed one restaurant.

In most of the robberies, he demands cash and flees on foot. So far, no one has been injured.
