The Knox County Sheriff's Office is searching for three separate suspects in three separate armed robberies.

Deputies are looking for a woman who robbed a gas station at gunpoint. It happened at Super Stop Market on Beaver Creek Drive in North Knox County Monday night.

The sheriff's office says the suspect showed a gun and threatened to kill the cashier if she didn't open the register. Deputies say the woman got some cash, then fled.

The suspect is described as a white female, 5'5", 130 to 150 pounds with brown eyes, brown hair and a deep, raspy voice. Deputies say she was wearing heavy makeup, a grey hoodie, jeans and Ugg boots.

Deputies are also searching for a man who they say robbed a Pilot on Campbell Station Road around 7:14 Tuesday evening. They say he punched the clerk in the face and ran off with money.

Officials believe the suspect is Native American, and he is described as 6' to 6'2" and 230 to 250 pounds in his late teens or early 20s. He was wearing a black hat, grey hoodie, and a dark fleece zip-up jacket.

The sheriff's office is also searching for a suspect who robbed a Weigel's on Oak Ridge Highway at knife point around 7:37 p.m. Tuesday evening. He got away with a few dollars and some cigarettes, then escaped on foot.

The suspect is described as a white male, 6-foot tall and about 180 pounds. He was wearing a Nike hat, black hoodie, and an orange t-shirt.

Anyone with information on any of these robberies is asked to call the sheriff's office at (865) 215-2243.
