DOMINO PARTY BROKEN UP TWICE

                                         Suspects sought

13-5-14

The party is over for a group of domino players that gathered at a North Lauderdale business after armed robbers broke up their game a second time.

The first robbery took place Jan. 12 (see PIO 13-2-13).  Broward Sheriff’s Office robbery detectives are releasing crystal clear video of the second hold up on Feb. 28, hoping to identify the suspects.   Numerous cameras from outside and inside the business captured the entire crime from beginning to end. 

It happened around 8:30 p.m. at DN Consultants (a public adjuster business), 6041 Kimberly Blvd., Suite B, North Lauderdale.  BSO dispatch first received a call from a witness who spotted an armed man, wearing a hooded sweatshirt, tapping on the door of the business with a gun.

The game organizer buzzed the suspect in without realizing he was a crook.  The gunman is seen looking around the waiting room.  As the victim approaches and opens the door to the waiting room, he sees the armed man and quickly struggles to shut the door as the robber pushes from the other side.   When suspect’s accomplice arrives, the suspect steps away to let him inside the business, giving the victim time to run and hide.  Another camera shows the victim and his domino friends pack into a small back room to get away from the robbers. The robbers are seen searching for the victims from room to room.  While hiding in the back room, the victim and his friends manage to unlock the bay door and escape.  The robbers took a cell phone and escaped through the front door.

The suspects are black males, in their late teens to mid-20s.  The first suspect is about 5’10”, 200 lbs. and has a short afro.  The accomplice measures about 5’7”, weighs approximately 150 lbs. and is of thin build.  Both suspects wore hooded sweatshirts and pants.  They were possibly travelling in a black vehicle.

Anyone who can identify of the robbers or has information about this robbery is asked to contact BSO Robbery Detective Cody Gill at 954-321-4270 or Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS (8477).  A reward of up to $1,000 is available for information leading to an arrest.
