Armed Robber Yet to be Caught – Sheriff’s Office Needs Your Help
Robbery is probably the most common crime ever reported. The instances happen so often in so many areas that the public is desensitized to it in a way. Usually, however, robberies are poorly executed, and the culprit is usually caught. In this case however, the robber has yet to be caught and the sheriff’s office is using a composite sketch to try and identify the criminal.
According to WPTV News, the sheriff’s office is asking for the public’s help in identifying an armed robber who targeted a driver on State Road 7 earlier this month.
The victim said he was driving south just before 10 p.m. Feb. 1 when a black Ford Expedition forced him to pull over onto the right shoulder, according to a Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office release. Once on the shoulder, a black Pontiac minivan pulled up alongside the driver and the door swung open. A man carrying a black revolver got out and pointed it at the victim’s head.
He then demanded cash and jewelry. After receiving money and credit card receipts, he got back into the minivan and left, the release stated.
The robber is described as between 5-feet-10 and 6 feet, 190-220 pounds, with a full beard and mustache.
He was wearing a black baseball cap, black hoodie, leather gloves and dark sunglasses. Anyone with information on the suspect is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-458-TIPS.
