  • Text size: + -

Investigators have identified the man they say robbed six locations, including four GameStop stores, in Austin last month.

Police say they are looking for New Mexico-native Christopher Perea, 27, for his suspected involvement in the armed robberies.

According to authorities, Perea is also the suspect of several other robberies in New Mexico and Colorado.

The Federal Bureau of Investigations is working with local police departments to track Perea down.

Police were able to identify the 27-year-old after an employee at a GameStop in Albuquerque recognized him during a robbery.

He faces aggravated robbery charges in Austin.
