Armed suspect sought in early morning robbery

Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers is asking for the public’s help identifying and tracking down the man who robbed a 7-Eleven convenience store early yesterday morning.

Just before 2:30 a.m., an unidentified male entered the 7-Eleven store, located at 15261 Convenience Way.  After walking up to the fountain drink area, he proceeded to the register, pulled out a firearm and demanded all the cash from the drawer.  In fear for her life, the clerk complied and handed over an undisclosed amount of money placed in a plastic bag.  The suspect immediately fled the store on foot in an unknown direction.

He is described as a white or Hispanic male, who was wearing a black hoodie and tan pants. 

Anyone with information on the identity or whereabouts of the suspect is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780-TIPS (8477).  All callers will remain anonymous and will be eligible for a cash reward of up to $3,000.
