New York City police are searching for a suspect behind a string of gas station robberies in the Bronx. Security camera video shows the suspect just before one of the robberies. Police say the man pretends to be a customer, then pulls out a handgun and steals money from the register.

Detectives say the thief has targeted at least four gas stations in the Riverdale and Bedford Park sections.

Investigators believe the man is in his 40's and about 6-feet tall.

Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD's CrimeStoppers hotline at 800-577-TIPS.
