A man is wanted for 5 robberies or attempted robberies in the last 4 days in the eastern part of Baltimore County.

Baltimore County Police obtained an arrest warrant for Arick Fleming, 55, but haven't been able to find him.

His crime spree started on Friday at the Royal Farms Store at 9620 Belair Road in Perry Hall. Police said he approached the counter to buy a donut and when the cashier opened the register Fleming reached over to grab cash from the drawer.

The cashier was able to close the drawer and Fleming ran away with nothing.

A half an hour later he attempted a similar robbery at the Royal Farms Store at 1523 East Joppa Road in Towson. This time he did take some money.

Police said he struck again early Saturday morning at the Royal Farms Store at 8803 Philadelphia Road in Rosedale. He approached the counter to buy a pack of gun. When the cashier opened the drawer, police said Fleming implied he had a gun and threatened to shoot the cashier. He made off with some cash.

He struck again on Sunday at the Royal Farms at 2700 Taylor Avenue in Parkville. Police said he threatened to kill an employee who tried to stop him after he unsuccessfully tried to take money out of the register.

He last struck on Monday at the High's Store at 6801 Broening Road in Dundalk. Police said he took cash from an open register after he bought a drink.

Police are confident he will strike again. They released surveillance pictures of Fleming. They also said he is described as having bowed legs and walks with a limp.

Fleming is considered armed and dangerous.

If seen, do not approach him, but call 911 or 410-307-2020 with information regarding his whereabouts.
