In the robberies, many in Jamaica, the suspect holds up the driver of a for hire car at gunpoint after impersonating a police officer.
He then stole the drivers' cash, credit cards and cell phone.
The robbery spree began last week, with all the incidents happening between 7:20 p.m. and 5:20 a.m. The most recent robbery happened on Monday.
Detectives want to question a man identified as Jamel Hanley who is described as approximately 5-foot-10 and 160 pounds.
A wanted poster was tweeted by police along with a $2,000 reward for his capture.
"I can't carry a gun with me. I just hope for the best," said one driver, Justin Crawley. Like many livery drivers, he's trying to stay safe and avoid the suspect.
Caught on several different security cameras around the AirTran terminal at JFK, he is believed to have approached one driver outside a terminal. Once in the car, he threatens them with a weapon and claims to be a police officer.
"We have to be very careful who we are picking up and do the best we can do," said livery driver Earl Singh.
On Feb. 2nd, a driver was robbed of $250.
On Feb. 4th, three drivers were robbed, two in the early morning hours and another at 9 o'clock in the evening.
Three more armed robberies followed. The total take: $960, along with a GPS, cell phone and credit cards. Police say the suspect has jumped from the livery cabs in Jamaica and escaped capture.
Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS.
