Boise Police are on the scene of yet another armed robbery.

It happened about 3:20 p.m. Monday at the Motel 6, in the 2300 block of Airport Way in Boise.

According to an Ada County dispatch supervisor, the suspect is described as a dark-skinned man in his twenties, wearing a black hoodie.

He displayed a handgun during the robbery, the dispatch supervisor said.

The suspect was last seen leaving the scene on foot.

No additional details were immediately available.

Investigators are not yet sure if the crime is connected to a string of recent armed robberies.

On Sunday night, a man robbed the Jack-in-the-Box fast food restaurant at 7040 West State St. in Boise. Witnesses described the suspect as a Caucasian or Hispanic man, wearing black sunglasses and a black hoodie.

Last week, a business on Fairview Avenue in Boise was robbed by a suspect described a black male in his late teens or early-twenties and wearing a black hooded sweatshirt. He got away with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Police believe the man may be the same suspect in four similar armed robberies of businesses; one in Nampa and three in Boise.

In all cases, investigators say the suspect wore similar clothing and behaved in a similar manner.

Anyone with information about the Monday afternoon crime -– or any of the robberies -– is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 343-COPS.
