Gunman sought in Monrovia RadioShack robbery

MONROVIA — A robber who held up a Monrovia RadioShack at gunpoint Thursday may be responsible for other similar crimes in the region, authorities said.
Thursday’s robbery took place about 3:45 p.m. at the store at 340 W. Huntington Drive, Monrovia police Sgt. Heath Harvey said.
The robber entered the store and brought a product to the register as if about to make a purchase, the sergeant said. But he then displayed a handgun and demanded money from an employee before fleeing with an unknown amount of cash.
Police described him as a white man between 38 and 42, about 5 feet 8 inches tall, of average build, with possibly green eyes.
A similar suspect description was mentioned in connection with another RadioShack robbery in Pasadena exactly one month ago on Feb. 20, authorities said. Detectives were looking into whether the Monrovia robber was linked to the Pasadena crime, as well as any others in the area.
In the Pasadena robbery, a man entered a RadioShack at 3535 Foothill Blvd, brandished a handgun and demanded cash, Pasadena police Lt. Vasken Gourdikian said at the time.
He was described as a white man in his early 40s, who was armed with a handgun.
