DES MOINES, Iowa -- Des Moines police are investigating another robbery of a Git-N-Go store.

The latest happened just after midnight Monday at 865 42nd Street, right across the street from Roosevelt High School.

The suspect was a white male and the store clerk told police the man was armed with a gun.

Police aren't able to say yet whether this may be connected to a string of other Git-N-Go robberies.

In recent weeks, 10 robberies have taken place at several metro locations.

Police say the same person may be behind them all. That person is described as a white male, likely in his 20s and measuring about 5-feet-11-inches.
