The robberies took place at an insurance office off Bloomfield Village Drive; a convenience store off Thomaston Road; and, for the second time in 11 days, the Xmart Adult Store on Emery Highway.

The Bibb County sheriff's office has released several photos of the man they say robbed one store.

It happened just before noon at the Marathon Convenience store at 6199 Thomaston Road, according to a news release.

The man entered the store, pointed a handgun at the clerk and demanded cash, then ran away with the money toward Price Road. No one was injured.

According to the news release, the man was about 6 feet tall and was wearing a Rocawear-brand hooded jacket with the number 99 on the sleeve near the cuff and Rocawear in large letters across the back. There is a large "R" on the front left chest of the jacket. He was wearing black cargo pants.
