Pasco County sheriff's officials are warning the public to look out for a man suspected in a string of armed robberies this month in the New Port Richey area.

Deputies said Henry Sizemore, 32, is believed to have robbed several people and businesses since April 29.

In the first incident, a robber swiped a woman's wallet and purse April 29 in the 10000 block of Oak Hill Drive in Port Richey. Then, on May 1, a man robbed the clerk at a Check 'n Go office at 7205 State Road 54, implying that he had a gun.

On May 4, a man walked into a Winn-Dixie store at 6033 State Road 54, hit a clerk on the head with a metal object and took cash from his pocket. After that, the robber hit a Sunoco station at 6445 State Road 54, implying he had a gun and threatening to hurt the clerk.

The latest robbery happened Tuesday at a Hess gas station, 7319 Plathe Road in New Port Richey, where the man held a clerk at gunpoint while making him put money in a bag.

Sizemore, who has an active arrest warrant on a charge of violating probation, is homeless and known to frequent the area near Rowan Road and State Road 54, officials said. Deputies did not say how he was linked to the robberies.

Sizemore may be armed with a handgun, authorities said. Anyone with information regarding his whereabouts is asked to call the Pasco County Sheriff's Office at (727) 844-7711.
