Video Shows Clerk Chasing Alleged Robbery Suspect: BSO

Authorities have released surveillance footage from a recent store robbery in Pompano Beach, in hopes of catching the suspect.

On Sept. 30, the Broward Sheriff's Office said a man walked into the Dollar General on Hammonville Road.

Investigators said the man looked through merchandise before coming to the register and asking about the price of a drink.

The manager told him the drink was $1 and the man replied he had no money. The manager offered to buy the drink for him.

When the manager opened the register, the man demanded he give him $100. The suspect then insinuated he had a firearm. He warned the victim not to push the panic button or call for help. He also told the victim he had just gotten out of jail and wanted the money.

The manager complied and gave the robber $20 from the register. When the suspect reached for the money, the victim realized the thief was not armed. The manager tried to grab the money, but the man fled the store.

Detectives are searching for a black male possibly in his 50's with black hair cut close and a grey beard. He is approximately 6-feet-tall and weighs about 160 pounds. He wore a grey polo shirt, dark pants and dark sneakers.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers of Broward County at (954) 493-TIPS.
