Tips from the public and Broward Crime Stoppers helped Broward Sheriff’s Office robbery detectives identify and arrest an armed robber Saturday evening.

On Dec. 17, Broward Sheriff’s Office detectives released surveillance video of a subject who pointed a gun at a Walmart employee while riding past her on a bicycle he stole. Following that media release, tips came in from the public which led detectives to identify and arrest 18-year-old Jarred Frico for the armed robbery

The crime happened shortly before 7 a.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 16, at the Walmart located at 3001 N. State Road 7 in Lauderdale Lakes. As the subject began to exit the store with a Hyperspeed Explorer bicycle worth approximately $372, an employee asked him to show a receipt. The subject replied that he doesn’t have a receipt and continued out the door. At that point, the employee stuck out her foot to try to stop the subject. As she did that, he reached into his waistband, pulled out a handgun and pointed it at the employee’s face, telling her to “get back.”

The subject then fled out of the door in an unknown direction.

Frico was taken into custody and is facing one count of robbery with a firearm.
