Police looking for man who robbed circle k

Detectives are searching for a man who robbed the Circle K at 1501 Gulf-to-Bay Blvd. on Wednesday. A man described as white, in his 50s, about 6 feet tall and 180 pounds, approached an employee who was behind the counter about 7:25 p.m. and implied he had a gun. The man, who had a gray goatee and blond ponytail that reached the middle of his back, demanded money and then fled with an undisclosed amount of cash. He was wearing blue jeans, a black leather jacket and a ball cap. Police are asking anyone with information to call (727) 562-4422.

A pedestrian in her mid-50s was killed Wednesday night when she walked into traffic, police said. The crash happened about 6:50 p.m. in the 2800 block of Gulf-to-Bay Boulevard. Her identity has not been released because her next of kin has not been notified. The crash shut down eastbound lanes of Gulf-to-Bay Boulevard and all but one westbound lane.

Trapper still trying to capture monkey

The rhesus monkey running loose in Clearwater had not been found as of Thursday afternoon. Trapper Vernon Yates said he'd received a few more calls on Thursday but none of the tips panned out. He's considering taking a different approach to capturing the monkey, which was last seen in the area of U.S. 19 and Drew Street. Instead of chasing the monkey, he might put out traps to bait the monkey. Anyone who spots the monkey can call the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission hotline, toll-free, at 1-888-404-3922.


You can be a voice for abused youths

In Pinellas County, more than 1,200 abused children need a volunteer guardian to advocate for them in court and the child welfare system. The average time needed is four to six hours a month.

Guardians are trained and supported by an experienced supervisory and legal staff. The next class will start Feb. 17 and meet five weeks, Tuesday and Wednesday evenings from 6 to 9 p.m., at the Criminal Justice Center, 14250 49th St. N, near Largo. To attend a half-hour orientation, call (727) 464-6528. For information and an application go to
