Police seek three men in four St. Petersburg armed robberies

ST. PETERSBURG — Police are looking for three men suspected in a string of armed robberies beginning Oct. 27.

The latest robbery happened about 3:19 p.m. Monday at the Central V-Mart at 3710 Central Ave.

Police said three suspects arrived on bicycles. One acted as a lookout while the other two, armed with handguns, went inside and demanded money. Once they got the money, all three left on bicycle.

Police connected the robbery to previous incidents because of the same number of suspects, the same descriptions and the same general area.

The men who entered the store wore bandanas or a shirt over their faces, police said.

Police described one man as black, in his 20s, about 5 feet 7 to 5 feet 10, and 140 to 160 pounds, with shoulder-length dreadlocks tied in a ponytail. Another was black, in his 20s, about the same height and 130 to 140 pounds. The third was described as black, in his 30s, about 5 feet 8 to 6 feet, and 150 to 170 pounds.

The same men are suspected of robbing Sunny's Hair and Beauty Supply at 2108 49th St. S about 3 p.m. Nov. 4, the Mobil gas station at 4850 Central Ave. on Nov. 3 and the New Plaza Motel at 400 34th St. N on Oct. 27.

Police ask anyone with information to call (727) 893-7780. Anonymous tipsters can call (727) 892-5000 or text a tip to 420-8911.

    BOSTON — You might want a bigger boat, but you probably don't need better odds.

Before release, the nearly 15-foot, 2,292-pound shark was named Genie for famed shark researcher Eugenie Clark.
