Clearwater police seek help in identifying robbery suspect

CLEARWATER — Police are asking for the public's help in finding a man they believe robbed a laundry service in downtown Clearwater on Saturday morning.

According to police spokeswoman Elizabeth Watts, an unknown male entered Diamond Laundry at 926 Cleveland St. at 10:43 a.m. Sunday with a black handgun.

He held a female employee at gunpoint and demanded money from two other employees in the store, Watts said. The employees gave the man an undisclosed amount of money from the cash register. He ran to an older-model white Ford Explorer and drove away.

Police have released two surveillance photos of the robber and hope the public can help identify him. He was about 6 feet tall, wearing a blue baseball cap, black athletic shorts, a dark sweater and blue rubber gloves.

Police are asking that anyone with information about the suspect call the Clearwater Police Department Tip Line at (727) 562-4422. Individuals can also send an anonymous text message to 847411 (tip411) or submit tips online at www.clearwaterpolice.org.
