Description of Incident:
The Broward Sheriff's Office Robbery Unit is asking for the public’s help in identifying a suspect, who was caught on tape robbing a convenience store clerk at a gas station in Pompano Beach.
Shortly after 11 p.m. on September 17th, the white male suspect entered the Marathon Gas Station, located at 498 South Cypress Road. The unidentified male asked the clerk for a pack of cigarettes before pulling a small revolver from the waistband of his long baggy blue jeans.
