A suspect has been linked to robberies at ATMs on Baltimore National Pike, Frederick Road and Wilkens Avenue.

Baltimore County police released a surveillance photograph of a man suspected in several armed robberies in the area.

Between June 17 and July 22, a man armed with a handgun confronted victims while they used ATMs on Baltimore National Pike, Frederick Road, and Wilkens Avenue, according to police.

The suspect approached the victims, displayed a handgun and demanded money, police said. The suspect used a vehicle in all of the cases, but the vehicle descriptions varied from one crime to the next, according to police.

All of the robberies occurred on Saturday or Sunday evening, between 9:30-10:30 p.m, police said.

I wonder if the police have ever set up stings at these machines? Sounds like a good idea if there is a rash of them during any given time.
