CLANTON, AL (WBRC)- The police chief in Clanton has a big problem on his hands. Chief Brian Stilwell says there's been a rash of armed robberies in his city.
He thinks the same crook has committed robberies in several other towns, including Hoover.
Authorities believe it is one guy acting alone in all these situations. They suspect he may be travelling up and down I-65 looking for targets.
Over the last months he's hit five Alabama towns that are as far as three plus hours away from each other. Police hope to stop him before hits more.
One of the most recent victims was a clerk at an Exxon gas station who goes by "Christina." She described what happened during the robbery.
"Was about 7:40. I was standing at the counter and I heard the door open. The guy came in, pointed the gun at me and said, where's the money?" Christina said.
