Man Known as ‘Peaches’ Wanted for 5 Robberies in Lorain
LORAIN, Ohio — Authorities are searching for a suspect they say ripped off five stores in Lorain.
The suspect, Julian Goodson, 26, committed the robberies after being released on parole after a prison sentence for armed robbery on July 1st. The first robbery occurred on July 3rd.
Lorain police say Goodson, also known as “Peaches”, committed each robbery in the same manner. He pretends to purchase a small item, and when the cashier opens the register he reaches over and grabs the cash.
His latest heist occurred July 9th at J R Foods on East 42nd Street. After handing the cashier $5, he grabbed $50 and two checks before escaping. He also stole $362.70 from the Family Dollar at 4009 Pearl Avenue on July 3rd and fled in a light colored Ford Focus or Fusion and $80 from Kwik Mart on Pearl Avenue on July 7th. He committed two robberies on July 8th, the first at 5:56 a.m. at a Dairy Mart on Broadway Avenue in which he made off with $185, and another at approximately 1 p.m. at C-Town Market on Colorado Avenue.
Goodson is described as 6’1″ tall and weighs 150 pounds. He also has a distinct tattoo on his hand and reportedly wore pink women’s clothing in at least two robberies.
Authorities issued a Be On the Lookout alert on Goodson. According to the alert his current address is unknown, though another report lists his address as the 900 block of West 11th Street in Lorain.
The Lorain Police Department asks anyone with information regarding the robberies contact them 216-204-2105.
