Manhattan business owners should keep their eyes open for suspects matching the description in recent armed robbery cases. That’s according to Riley county Police Captain Tim Hegarty, who addressed Riley County Commissioners Monday morning.
Hegarty indicates leads continue to be worked in the cases, with three armed robberies in a week time period. Hegarty also suggests if business owners see someone matching the suspect or suspects descriptions, to let police know–as frequently suspects may check out a target ahead of time.
While the FBI is working one of the cases, robberies have occurred at Kansas State Bank in downtown Manhattan, the Walgreens on Bluemont, and Dara’s Fast Lane on Tuttle Creek Boulevard.
