NEWPORT NEWS-A man with a gun robbed an auto parts store in Newport News and police think he could be responsible for nearly a dozen robberies at discount stores.

Surveillance images from Advance Auto on Warwick Blvd. show the man inside, approaching the counter and forcing the employee to put money in a yellow bag.

Police say there were several customers and a child in the store during the 7pm robbery and he ordered them to the back of the store so he could leave.

No one was hurt.

If you can help police with this robbery or any other case, call Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP.
