Police said Monday they are seeking D'Andre Darrington on two counts each of robbery, conspiracy, and wearing a disguise in connection with these robberies.

Darrington is described as black, six feet tall, approximately 150 pounds with a thin build, brown eyes and curly black hair.

Three other suspects remain unidentified and are still at large.
