Description of Incident:

An armed robber walked into a Dania Beach gas station and immediately went to work. With a gun in hand, he ordered the clerk to open the cash register, snatched the cash and cash drawer and then paused to select a pack of smokes. Once he found the cigarettes he wanted, he fled into a waiting white Buick Rendezvous.

Broward Sheriff’s Office detectives are hoping newly released surveillance video will help ID the suspect.

The armed robbery happened around 5 a.m. July 23 at Chevron gas station, 2080 Griffin Road. In the video, the suspect is wearing a long-sleeve black top, loose-fitting black shorts and a pair of distinctive black and white sneakers. At one point during the robbery, his light-colored boxers can be seen. The crook’s face is covered with a black cloth and shades. He’s about 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighs roughly 150 pounds.

The suspect and his driver sped off in the later-model SUV, which has a sunroof, rack and gold trim. The SUV's left light was broken. It was seen heading east toward I-95. To view the surveillance video, click here.
