LAKEWOOD, Colo. -- Police are looking to find a man suspected of eight robberies at three King Soopers supermarkets in the past six months.

The robberies started in July when the so-called "Secret Shopper Bandit" robbed a King Soopers on Kipling Street in Lakewood.

Investigators said he operates pretty much the same way. He will walk up to a cashier and hand them a bag that has a note demanding money.

The man has not displayed any weapons and no one has been injured.

The man is described as white, about 6-foot, 25 to 35 years old with a medium build and facial hair.

The eight robberies have happened at three King Soopers stores since July.
