KINGMAN - Kingman Police detectives are investigating their fourth armed robbery case in 10 days following a heist Monday morning at Check n Go on Beverly Avenue.

About 10:31 a.m., a white male wearing what appeared to be round, framed prescription glasses walked into the business, a news release from the KPD stated.

The suspect allegedly produced a handgun that he pointed at a female employee, the only person inside the business at the time, and demanded money. He was given about $3,000 and then fled on foot east along Beverly Avenue, Sgt. Lyman Watson said.

Surveillance cameras photographed the suspect and detectives are reviewing the video.

The employee described him as about 5-foot-10, weighing 185-200 pounds and 35-40 years of age. He wore a dark-colored ball cap, dark gray sweatshirt (no hood), tan pants and dark shoes at the time he placed the cash in the pockets of the sweatshirt.

An attempt-to-locate broadcast on the suspect was issued to the Arizona Department of Public Safety, Mohave County Sheriff's Office and Bullhead City and Lake Havasu City police departments.

Anyone with information on the suspect should contact Detective Dennis Gilbert at 753-2191.

A reward for information leading to the suspect's arrest also is offered by calling Silent Witness at 753-1234.

On Oct. 27, Chase Bank on Stockton Hill Road was robbed of $1,880. North Las Vegas Police captured that suspect, identified as Mark Joseph Powell, 35, of Oklahoma, early on Oct. 31.

A motel in the 3100 block of East Andy Devine Avenue was the target of a robbery Nov. 1. Two suspects allegedly stole $300 from a clerk and fled in a Ford Taurus.

Kingman Police caught up with the car on Interstate 40 near D.W. Ranch Road about 30 minutes after the crime and arrested Robert J. Fernandes, 29, of Bullhead City and Clarence Cowan, 34, of Golden Valley.

They both were booked into Mohave County Jail on one count of armed robbery.

On Friday, a woman entered a business in the 200 block of N. Fourth Street. She allegedly produced a silver-colored handgun and fled on foot with clothing, jewelry and an undisclosed amount of cash.

She was still at large as of this morning. She was wearing an oversized blue shirt, dark pants and brown curly wig at the time of the crime.
