Clearwater man arrested, two at large after Oldsmar robbery

OLDSMAR — One man was arrested and two suspects remain at large after an Oldsmar sushi restaurant was robbed at gunpoint Monday night.

Jabari O. Wade, 18, of Clearwater, was arrested on a charge of principal armed robbery. The Pinellas County Sheriff's Office said Wade drove the getaway car.

Two men entered Boton Sushi Restaurant at 300 E State St. around 8 p.m. Monday and pointed guns at two employees' heads, deputies said. They demanded an unspecified amount of cash and left in what appeared to be a gold four-door Taurus, according to reports.

An employee obtained the getaway car's tag number, deputies said, and officers found the Taurus in the 1100 block of La Salle Street in Clearwater. They pulled the car over, arrested Wade but, they said, the other two men ran away.

One robber is a black man, in his early 20s, about 5-foot-7 with a thin build, deputies said. He has a short haircut and was last seen wearing a gray T-shirt.

The other is also a black man in his early 20s, deputies said, about 5-foot-4 with a medium build. He has a short haircut and might have been wearing a dark blue T-shirt.

Wade remained at the Pinellas County jail Tuesday with bail set at $5,000.
