ST. PETERSBURG — Authorities were investigating a robbery Tuesday night at a St. Petersburg convenience store that was the target of a similar crime last week.
A man walked into the City Food Mart at 5028 66th St. N about 9 p.m., told a clerk he had a gun, and demanded money, deputies said. The man fled with an undisclosed amount of money in a white, four-door, late model car.
The man claimed to have a gun in his sweatshirt, but the clerk did not see a weapon, deputies said. This is the second robbery at the store in less than a week. Details of the March 27 heist were not immediately available.
Detectives don't know if the two robberies are related. Anyone with information should call the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office at (727) 582-6200.
