BRAZEN ARMED ROBBERS QUICKLY SET THEIR PLAN IN MOTION

Date: July 12, 2017                                                               PIO Number: 17-7-12


It took two armed robbers less than one minute to terrorize two victims and get away with a significant amount of cash from a neighborhood convenience store. Now detectives are releasing a video of the harrowing crime in the hope that the public can help identify the two armed men.

Just after 10:30 p.m. June 27, two armed men entered Los Paisas Groceries, located at 1851 S. State Road 7 in Unincorporated Broward County, through a back door. The first robber walked behind the counter. He brandished his gun at the clerk and pushed him aside. He grabbed all the cash as well as a box filled with several months’ worth of transactions receipts.

The second man moved quickly toward the front door. He set his sights on stopping a customer from fleeing. He pointed a gun, possibly a TEC-9, at the customer who initially tried to bat the gun away and run out the front door. The robber grabbed the victim by the back of his shirt, dragged him back in and threw him to the ground. All the while, he pointed his gun at the victim.

The suspects fled in a white car, possibly a Toyota Camry. The first suspect wore black pants, a black jacket, a gray hoodie, a face mask and gloves. He was approximately 5 foot 9 inches tall with a heavy build. The second suspect wore black jeans, a white T-shirt, a gray hoodie, a face mask and gloves. He was about 5 foot 10 inches tall and had a thin frame.

Anyone with information is asked to contact BSO Detective Armando Enrique at 954-321-4270. If you wish to remain anonymous, contact Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS (8477) or online at browardcrimestoppers.org. Anonymous tips that lead to an arrest are eligible for a reward of up to $3,000.
