A robbery at a Bowling Green check cashing service has police looking into the possibility of its connection to a string of other robberies.

The manager of "Hometown Check Advance" on the 31-W Bypass says an armed man entered the store with a bandanna over his face.

The manager Debbie Mann says, "He came in and walked straight up to me and handed me a paper bag, and wanted my money, and so I opened the drawer and put the money in there."

The suspect is described as a tall, skinny man wearing a hooded sweatshirt and a blue and white bandanna.

A witness also said the suspect got away in a blue pick-up.

Police are now looking into the possibility the same person robbed "Payday USA Cash Advance" also on the bypass back in February.
