An active search is ongoing for a gunman in another QuikTrip robbery Wednesday morning. It's at least the fifth time thieves have hit the chain of convenience stores in Tulsa this week.

Police are investigating to see if there is a connection between several of these crimes.

Around 2:30 a.m. Wednesday, October 26, 2016,  TPD said a man walked into the QuikTrip at 21st and Memorial and pulled out a gun.  He demanded cash from the register, got it, and walked off to the north of the store. 

Police used K-9 to try and track him, and but they couldn't find him.

On Tuesday, the store at 31st and 129th East Avenue was hit by three people. Police said they implied they had a knife. And on Monday, police say several boxes of cigarettes were stolen from three different stores- by two men without weapons.

Finally, employees at one of those locations Monday told officers - they recognized one of the potential suspects as having struck at several other stores recently.
