The Rockdale County Sheriff’s Office is looking for the individual in these pictures, who is considered to be a person of interest in the June 7 armed robbery of Starship on Ga. Highway 138 in Conyers.

CONYERS — The Rockdale County Sheriff’s Office has issued a lookout for a person of interest in an armed robbery that occurred at Starship Enterprises located at 1682 Ga. Highway 138 in Conyers sometime around 11 a.m. on Friday, June 7.

This person of interest entered the store approximately 20 minutes prior to the armed robbery and appeared to be “casing” the store, walking around the counter near the cash register for a few minutes before buying one small item, according to the RCSO

Based on surveillance footage, an individual dressed like this person of interest is seen along the fence behind the store just prior to the armed robbery. A couple of minutes after this person is no longer in range of the store camera, the armed robbery suspect wearing different clothing emerged from the same area that the person of interest was last seen.

This person of interest has been connected only with the June 7 armed robbery of the Conyers Starship and has not been seen in any of the other Starship robberies in metro Atlanta.

According to authorities, there have been 12 robberies of Starship stores in Conyers, College Park, Jonesboro and southwest Atlanta. Two of the robberies occurred at the Conyers store. Officials previously said they suspected the same man committed all 12 of the robberies.

No one has been injured in any of the robberies, but in the June 7 incident in Conyers, the suspect fired a shot at a customr who started to come in the front door of the business. The shot missed the customer but shattered the glass front door.

Anyone with information about the identity of this person of interest is asked to contact Lt. Sonya Cordero with the Rockdale County Sheriff’s Office by phone at 770-278-8152 or by email at sonya.cordero@rockdalecounty.org. Anonymous tips can also be submitted to Crime Stoppers Atlanta at 404-577-TIPS (8477) or at www.crimestoppersatlanta.org.

Starship Enterprises is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of anyone who has committed armed robbery against any of the stores in the adult novelty chain.
