Helena police believe robbery suspect connected to robbery spree

HELENA, AL (WBRC) - Investigators believe a Winn-Dixie robbery spree began back in December of 2008 and say the suspect is a former Winn-Dixie employee.

The suspect is 20-year-old Adrian "T.J." Glenn, Jr. Glenn is behind bars in the Shelby County Jail charged with one count of 1st degree robbery and one count of 1st degree receiving stolen property.       

Police say surveillance video from a robbery at the Winn-Dixie store in Helena on November 16 shows Glenn entering the store, pointing a gun at a cashier and then going into the office where they say he took cash and told the employees to get on the floor.

Investigators from around the Birmingham metro area in at least four cities are looking into the possibility that Glenn may have been involved in robberies at Winn-Dixies in their communities. Investigators claim Glenn pocketed about $70,000 from all of his robberies.

"There is some evidence he may have had a lookout. Somebody that would go in before hand and check out the area… case the store to see if there was any reason that it should not occur," says Helena Police Captain Tim Carter.
Glenn is a former employee at the Trussville Winn Dixie store.
