The Kangol Robber first appeared on Broward Sheriff's Office detectives' radar November 14 when he robbed the Pet Supermarket in Pompano Beach (No video or pictures were released).

A month later, around 2 p.m. December 13, he calmly walked into the FedEx Office store at 1650 N. Federal Highway in Pompano Beach and held employees at gunpoint.  Initially, he walked around the store while talking on a cell phone.  He picked up a notepad and approached the cashier to pay.  As soon as the register opened, he took out a silver handgun and pointed it at the employees as he ordered them to get on the floor.   He emptied the cash drawer and ordered a second employee to open the safe.  He took that employee’s money and his driver’s license and fled. 

 The suspect is a black male in his mid- to late 20s.  He’s about 5’8” tall, weighs approximately 160 lbs. and is seen on video wearing a khaki, long-sleeve shirt, brown pants, brown shoes and a brown Kangol. 

 The suspect is also being sought by the Margate Police Department for two robberies on Jan. 2 at City Trends and Advanced Auto Parts.
