    A gunman robbed four gas stations and convenience stores early Wednesday in Pinellas Park and Largo, authorities said.

    The man, armed with a semiautomatic pistol, started his string of robberies about 1 a.m. He robbed a Circle K at 49th Street and 62nd Avenue N; a Shell station at 49th Street and Ulmerton Road; an Amoco station at 6919 Ulmerton; and another Circle K at 9097 Starkey Road, police said.

    The robber was described as white, about 25 years old, about 5 feet 7 and 190 pounds, with reddish-brown hair and a full beard. He didn't wear a mask or gloves, said Pinellas County sheriff's Sgt. Greg Tita.

    Anyone with information is asked to call the Pinellas Park or Largo police departments, the Sheriff's Office or Crimestoppers at (800) 873-TIPS (8477).
