Broward Sheriff’s Office detectives are releasing security video of an armed robbery that took place the day before Thanksgiving in Oakland Park. 

Just after 6 p.m. on Nov 21, an unidentified man holding a handgun entered the Loren Food Mart located at 3801 N.W. 9th Avenue. The store’s video captured the robber as he discharged his weapon and demanded the money from the register. The store clerk, stunned by the loud noise from the robber’s gun, complied. 

The robber was wearing a black baseball cap with a black T-shirt tucked under his hat, a black long sleeve Nike jacket, blue jean shorts, dark-colored shoes and a red bandana covering his face. He is about 5 foot 10 inches tall and approximately 170 pounds with a dark complexion.   

Anyone with information can contact BSO Det. Robert Sokol at 954-321-4547. If you wish to remain anonymous, contact Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS (8477) or online at Anonymous tips that lead to an arrest are eligible for a reward of up to $3,000.
