Description of Incident:
Broward Sheriff’s Office detectives have released surveillance video from a cell phone store robbery in Pompano Beach.
Just after 3:30 p.m. on February 1, a black male wearing a hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans bolted into the Metro PCS store at 317 E. Copans Rd. He ran right up to the counter and said “give me all the (expletive) money.” The clerk laughed at the scruffy-faced subject, who then pulled out a silver handgun, pointed it at the clerk and reiterated his profane demand. The clerk handed over cash and the gunman bolted out of the store – all in a matter of 18 seconds.
The robber is believed to be in his 20’s, around 5-foot-6 and 120 pounds. Anyone with information about this suspect should call BSO Det. Steven Hoover at 954-321-4270 or Broward Crime Stoppers, anonymously, at 954-493-TIPS (8477) or online at www.BrowardCrimeStoppers.org. A cash reward of up to $1,000 can be paid to tipsters who call Crime Stoppers with information leading to an arrest.
