Hernando deputies seek pair in convenience store armed robberies

SPRING HILL — Hernando County authorities are looking for two men in a pair of late-night robberies of convenience stores in Spring Hill.

Deputies were called to the BP Station at 13075 Spring Hill Drive a little after 11:30 p.m. Sunday and then to the Circle K at 14195 Elgin Blvd. about 4 a.m. Monday.

Authorities believe the robberies are connected because of similar methods and weapon.

According to the Sheriff's Office, in each robbery, one of the robbers approached a clerk with a single-shot shotgun and demanded money and cigarettes. The robber then provided the clerk with a black drawstring sling bag and a duffel bag.

In the first robbery, at the BP station, one of the robbers fired a shot into the store. No one was injured in either robbery.

Deputies said the robbers were possibly getting around in an unknown four-door vehicle with tinted windows and a missing hubcap on the front passenger side tire.

Both robbers were described as white males in their 20s. They were both wearing black ski masks during the robberies.

One of them has been described as 5 feet 8 and thin with blue eyes, black gloves and dark pants. The other is listed as 5 feet 10, 150 pounds and unshaven, and he was last seen wearing a black-hooded sweatshirt with white lettering, black and red gloves, black pants and black shoes.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Hernando County Sheriff's Office at (352) 754-6830 or the anonymous tips line at 1-866-990-8477.
