Deputies looking for three convenience store robbers

LEALMAN — Pinellas deputies are asking the public to help identify three people who robbed a convenience store at gunpoint earlier this month.

The Pinellas County Sheriff's Office said two men robbed Mini Market Neighborhood Store at 4500 46th Ave. N at 9:40 p.m. April 9, as another person sat in the getaway car.

Surveillance video shows a dark-colored, four-door Dodge Intrepid parked in front of the store.

Two men get out of the Dodge and enter the store, as another person, who cannot be seen in the video, stays in the car.

One man, described as black, 5 feet 10 and 170 pounds, was armed with a sawed-off shotgun. He pointed it at a male clerk's head and demanded money from the cash register, deputies said. He wore a black T-shirt with a yellow emblem, jeans, a black bandana over his face and a black, knit skullcap.

The second man was black, 6 feet 4 and 200 pounds. He carried a semiautomatic handgun and stole some "Billionaire" scratch-off lottery tickets. He was last seen wearing a white zipper hoodie sweat shirt with a pattern, long beige cargo shorts, white socks and dark sandals.

After the robbery, the men left the store, got back into the Dodge and drove off.

Detectives ask anyone with information on this robbery April 9 to call Pinellas sheriff’s Detective Jeff Capra at (727) 582-6200. Or, to remain anonymous and receive a cash award, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-873-8477, or go to the website at CrimeStoppersofPinellas.org.
