ROCKLAND, Mass. (WHDH) -- Armed robbers have hit more than two-dozen Dunkin Donuts in eastern Massachusetts in the past month, most recently in Rockland.

Now police officers in the area are meeting up to compare notes.

So far three Dunkin Donuts robberies have been reported this week; Rockland on Tuesday and Burlington and Bedford within half an hour of each other on Monday.

The Rockland suspect entered the business wearing a mask and carrying a gun.

The man approached a female clerk and pointed a gun at her while asking for the money.

The clerk gave him the money from the register and he fled out the side door of the coffee shop.

Police have released a surveillance video of the suspect in the Burlington and Bedford robberies.
