    Police have not released the identity of the suspect, but Wendy's employees said this person is a regular customer & they believe she is actually a man dressed as a woman.

    UPDATE:
    Woman suspect identified in an arrest warrant as Roxanne Taylor, 58. Since May 14, police have been searching for the woman, who was captured on surveillance video wearing a black University of Georgia ball cap; she was suspected of robbing four pharmacies in two weeks, most recently Tuesday at the Rite Aid pharmacy on Howell Mill Road.She was also accused in similar crimes May 12, May 14 and May 20, when a woman matching her description pointed a gun at employees at a pharmacy on North Druid Hills Road and demanded cash. The arrest warrant, issued Thursday by Atlanta police, charged Taylor with three robberies. In all three incidents, the suspect pointed a black handgun at a cashier and demanded all the money from the register.

    The update has been updated.

    "After further investigation detectives have determined the person believed to be a female suspect in fact is a male. His name is Roxanne Taylor, a 57 year old man."

    Taylor, a licensed helicopter pilot lived in a trendy loft near the state Capitol. Wearing dark sunglasses and a black University of Georgia ball cap, he had walked up to the checkout counters of at least seven metro pharmacies in recent weeks, exposed the handgun and demanded cash, said she/he was sorry, that she/he was dying of cancer and had no choice. “Don’t be scared, just give me all the money in the cash drawer.”
