BMX RIDER’S STUNT PROVES DANGEROUS, ILLEGAL
Date: Jan. 13, 2017 PIO Number: 17-01-09
A bicyclist pulled a complete 180 when he rolled up to a convenience store on a BMX bike and whipped out a semi-automatic handgun to rob the place. Security video from the evening of Dec. 8 captured the armed robbery which took place at the 7-Eleven located at 5600 Nob Hill Road in the city of Tamarac.
The unidentified robber ran into the store, jumped over the counter, pointed the gun at the clerk’s head and told him he had five seconds to open the register. He emptied the cash from both registers into a tan colored bag, possibly a reusable shopping bag, then jumped the counter and fled on his bike.
Robbery detectives are searching for the unidentified robber who wore a dark zip-up hooded-sweatshirt, a black T-shirt, black pants and a mask.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Det. Mark Copley at (954) 321-4738. If you wish to remain anonymous, contact Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS (8477) or online at www.browardcrimestoppers.org. Anonymous tips that lead to an arrest are eligible for a reward of up to $3,000.
