Authorities looking for would-be robber with potbelly

TAMPA — The attempted robber wore his shirt on his face, making his bare potbelly his most memorable characteristic.

Hillsborough deputies are asking for the public's help finding the white man, who is 40 to 45 years old, 6 feet 2, and 250 pounds with a potbelly. He was wearing jeans, and the T-shirt on his face was white.

Deputies say he tried to robbed the Circle K at 12850 Morris Bridge Road in Thonotosassa at 3:31 a.m. Tuesday, brandishing a crowbar and demanding cash.

The clerk managed to get the crowbar from the suspect, who fled in a white vehicle.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Sheriff's Office at (813) 247-8200 or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-873-8477.
