Police search for 3 men who targeted store
POMPANO BEACH, Fla. (WSVN) -- Authorities have released video of a robbery inside a South Florida store.
Surveillance cameras rolled as the armed robbers forced a store clerk into the stock room at a Radio Shack located on Atlantic Boulevard and South Powerline Road, last Thursday.
The Broward Sheriff's Office said the crooks made some key mistakes when they robbed the electronics store. The most notable mistake was doing a poor job of concealing themselves. "He makes a lame attempt at disguising himself, putting his dreads over his face, once they're in the back room," said BSO spokesperson Keyla Concepcion. "But the whole time that he's at the front of the store, he's just walking around nonchalantly showing his face at the cameras, which, at this point, is our best piece of evidence."
One of the crooks entered the Radio Shack while on his cellphone and approached the clerk who was working at the store by herself. He then pulled out a gun and forced her in to the back room and then let in two more suspects through the back door.
They then forced the Radio Shack employee to the ground and made their way out the back door with bags and boxes full of stolen goods.
If you have any information on this robbery, call Broward County Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS. Remember, you can always remain anonymous, and you may be eligible for a reward.
