LANKY ARMED ROBBER MENACES CONVENIENCE STORE CLERK

Date: September 1, 2017                                                     PIO Number: 17-9-5


On the afternoon of August 18, the clerk at the 7-Eleven Gas Station located at 290 W. Copans Road in Pompano Beach got quite a shock when a very imposing hooded figure walked into his store, pulled out a gun and demanded he turn over all the money in the register. Broward Sheriff’s Office Robbery Unit detectives are searching for the imposing armed robber.

To add to the stress of the situation, the robber began to count down from 10 aloud while pointing his gun at the victim, possibly as an added threat to the clerk.

The robber is described as a male, possibly in his early 20s. He has a dark complexion, approximately 6 feet 4 inches tall, weighing about 150 lbs. with a thin build. He wore a black hoodie and dark shorts.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Det. Steven Hoover at 954-321-4209. If you wish to remain anonymous, contact Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS (8477) or online at browardcrimestoppers.org.

MEDIA NOTE: The surveillance video is on our website, sheriff.org.
