A suspect whose photo was captured on surveillance video is believed involved in a fifth armed robbery.

The five armed robberies were reported in Ramona between July 22 and Dec. 6, and one of the suspects was seen on surveillance video holding a handgun during a robbery at Los Rancheros taco shop on Sept. 24.

The Sheriff’s Department and San Diego County Crime Stoppers are offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the suspect.

Detective Tom Seiver describes the suspect as a Latino man who is thin, about 5 feet, 8 inches tall, and probably in his early 20s, with a light complexion.

Seiver said the man was armed with a semi-automatic handgun and took money in all of the robberies.

The first robbery was reported at 9:24 a.m. July 22 at Ransom Brothers Lumber & Supply, 532 B St.

The man held up the store and fled on foot with an undisclosed amount of money.

The man and an unarmed accomplice — also a Latino man — are suspected of robbing the Los Rancheros taco shop, 1847 Main St., on two occasions. The robberies were reported at 1:23 a.m. Aug. 12 and 4:10 a.m. Sept. 24.

The man and an unarmed Latino man are suspected of robbing Diamond D Feed & Supply, 444 D St., at 6:04 p.m. on Nov. 29, Seiver said.

The most recent robbery was at Ramona Lisa Beer and Wine, 1140 Main St. No. 112, on Dec. 6.

Anyone seeing or recognizing the man should not confront him. Instead, sheriff’s officials said to call 911 or San Diego County Crime Stoppers at 888-580-8477. Callers may remain anonymous.
