An armed robber, nicknamed the “Kangol Robber” because of the brown flat cap he wears, is wanted by authorities in connection with four businesses that were struck in Pompano Beach and Margate in recent months.
Wednesday, Broward sheriff’s detectives released surveillance video of the man robbing employees at gunpoint at a FedEx store in Pompano Beach on Dec. 13. Detectives are seeking the public’s help to identify him.
The robber, sporting his Kangol-style hat, is seen in the video calmly walking around the FedEx store at 1650 N. Federal Highway while talking on a cellphone.
He picks up a notepad and approaches the cashier to pay. When the register opens, he shows a silver handgun and points it at employees. He orders them to the floor, empties the cash drawer and orders one employee to open a safe.
He steals the employee’s driver’s license and money, and then runs away.
According to the Sheriff’s Office, the man also robbed a Pompano Beach Pet Supermarket on Nov. 14. Margate police say the man also robbed two businesses in their city, Advance Auto Parts and Citi Trends, on Jan. 2, the Sheriff’s Office said.
Authorities ask anyone with information to phone sheriff’s Detective Roger Peterson at 954-321-4270 or Broward Crime Stoppers, anonymously, at 954-493-8477. A reward of up to $1,000 is available for information leading to an arrest.
