MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A man who robbed two Kroger store locations in early November is believed to be responsible for a third robbery Tuesday night.

On November 30, police said a lone suspect entered the Kroger store on South Mendenhall near Poplar Avenue around 5:30 p.m. and attempted to rob the business.

Police said the man entered the business and posed as a customer before approaching the customer service counter.

At the counter, the man indicated he had a gun and demanded money from the register.

Police said in this case, the suspect did not get money from the register before running out of the store.

This same suspect is also believed to be responsible for two similar robberies at the Kroger located at 2835 Kirby and the Poplar Plaza Kroger.
