Description of Incident:
Broward Sheriff’s Office detectives are hoping surveillance video will help them identify a suspect who went on a robbery spree targeting the same Pompano Beach Shell gas station three times.
At approximately 1 p.m. September 24, the unidentified male entered the Shell gas station at 3101 W. Atlantic Blvd. armed with a knife. He ordered the clerk to open the register and then helped himself to an undisclosed amount of cash.
A little more than a week later, shortly before 6 p.m. October 3, the suspect was captured on surveillance video entering the same Shell gas station. He approached the clerk and grabbed her arm with one hand while holding a long silver object, possibly a knife, in his other hand. He demanded that she open the register. Once the register was open, he grabbed an undisclosed amount of cash then left the station.
At about 2:30 p.m. on October 7, the serial robber is seen on surveillance video entering the Shell gas station and going behind the counter. Again, armed with a knife he demanded that the clerk open the register and fled with a handful of cash. This time the suspect was spotted running from the station toward the Collier City community.
In all three robberies the unidentified adult male suspect was wearing a white or tan T-shirt, blue jean or black gym shorts, a baseball cap and sunglasses.
