Authorities were searching for an armed carjacking suspect Wednesday morning.
An employee of Flanigan's in Pompano Beach was getting into her car when a woman, armed with a weapon, stole the vehicle, the Broward Sheriff's Office said.
The suspect fled in the black Nissan Rogue, which was found shortly after a few blocks away at 400 SE 23rd Ave.
The woman's purse was missing and so was the money from the business that she was going to deposit at a bank.
"We did locate the car a couple blocks away shortly thereafter, but the woman was nowhere to be found and of course the money and victim's purse is gone," said Keyla Concepcion, Broward Sheriff's spokeswoman.
Anyone with information should contact Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS (8477).
