NR 16-08 Sheriff’s Deputies Attempting to Identify Armed Robbery Suspect
On January 26, 2016, at approximately 11 P.M., the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office responded to an armed robbery, which occurred at the Sugar Creek Gas Station located at 4353 Highway 46, Mims. Video surveillance inside the store shows the suspect approaching the clerk, brandishing a firearm, all while demanding money. The suspect handed the clerk a plastic bag to place the money in, at which time a struggle ensued for the weapon. The clerk disarmed the suspect and the suspect fled out the front door of the store. He got into the passenger side of a maroon, older model, large style four door car, similar to a Lincoln Town Car, with a white top and an unknown tag. The weapon was then determined to be a black and brown revolver style air -soft gun.
The suspect was described as a white male, approximately 19-22 years old, 5’8” tall, and a medium build. He was last seen wearing blue jeans, a blue jacket with fur lined hood, and purple latex gloves. Also, the suspect was wearing a Chicago White Sox baseball hat, which was left at the scene, and white bandana covering his nose and mouth.
