Detectives seek information on armed robbery

Pinellas County Sheriff's Office detectives are investigating an armed robbery that took place around 1 a.m. Tuesday outside JJ's Scoreboard at 11301 Starkey Road in the unincorporated area of Largo. Detectives say the owner had closed his business for the night and was walking to his car when two people appeared near the vehicle. Both had jacket hoods pulled over their heads and bandannas covering the lower half of their faces. One of the robbers brandished a handgun while demanding cash, which prompted the victim to flee. One of the robbers chased him and struck him in the head with a gun. When the victim fell to the ground, the robbers took a bank deposit from him and fled on foot. The victim then called 911. Anyone with information concerning this investigation is asked to contact Detective Amy Plourde from the sheriff's robbery/homicide unit at (727) 582-6200, or to remain anonymous call Crime Stoppers toll-free at 1-800-873-TIPS (8477).
