A supermarket employee was robbed of $16,000 in bank deposits as she left the store, Miami-Dade Police said Monday.
Yoilys Baez, 28, left the back of the Presidente Supermarket at 9875 SW 40th Street at 8 a.m. on April 20 with the daily bank deposits, police said. As she walked to her car, three armed suspects demanded her purse. They took it and fled in a white Nissan Maxima with a moon roof.
Surveillance video caught the suspects' act, and authorities are asking for the community to help identify them.
"He's an older gentleman. He has white hair under the back of his baseball cap there," Miami-Dade Police spokesman Detective Javier Baez said as he reviewed the video. "And then you have the passenger here gets out of the car. And they both position themselves waiting for the victim to come out. And then that’s when ultimately the attack takes place."
The driver was never spotted by the camera.
Juan Garcia saw it all go down.
"She tried to fight with the guy. And the other guy says 'kill her, kill her, kill her,'" Garcia said. After more threats the woman let go of the purse, he added.
The robbery was thought out and methodical, Baez said.
A guard is now positioned at the front door of that Presidente Supermarket, and an armored car came by Monday to handle the cash.
Authorities ask anyone with information on the case to call Crime Stoppers at 305-471-8477 or online.
