St. Petersburg police looking for two men wanted in two armed robberies

ST. PETERSBURG — Police are looking for two men believed to have robbed two convenience stores at gunpoint early last week.

The two unidentified men entered a 7-Eleven at 3956 Elkcam Blvd. SE just before midnight on Dec. 7, police said. One of the men carried a small silver handgun and pointed it at the clerk's head while the other leaped over the counter and ordered the clerk to open the cash register.

The clerk complied and the man reached into the drawer and took an undisclosed amount of money.

Both then fled the store.

The man with the gun was described as black, in his late teens to early 20s and slender. He was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, black knitted cap, black bandana, black shorts and black shoes. The second man was described as black and in his late teens to early 20s. He was wearing a black knitted cap, black bandana, black hooded sweatshirt with a white long-sleeve T-shirt underneath, black pants, and black shoes.

The two men also are suspected of robbing the Suhani Food Mart at 2539 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. St. N Dec. 6 about 10:50 p.m.

Police ask anyone with knowledge of the case to call (727) 893-7780, or the Tip Line at (727) 892-5000 or Text-a-Tip at (727) 420-8911.

  2. Bowen: Park land deal raises Penny for Pasco questions


    The Penny for Pasco is unambiguous.

    At least it is supposed to be.

    There was no equivocating in 2004 when Penny for Pasco supporters detailed how the sales tax proceeds would be spent: schools, transportation, public safety and environmental lands. No money for parks. No money for recreation.

    Pasco County is considering a loan from its Environmental Lands Acquisition and Mangement Program to buy land for a park in the Villages of Pasadena Hills in east-central Pasco. Shown here is the Jumping Gully Preserve in Spring Hil, acquired by ELAMP in 2009 and 2011.

  5. As Clearwater Marine Aquarium expands, it asks the city for help


    CLEARWATER — When Clearwater Marine Aquarium CEO David Yates saw an architect's initial design for the facility's massive expansion project, he told them to start all over.

    Clearwater Marine Aquarium Veterinarian Shelly Marquardt (left), Brian Eversole, Senior Sea Turtle and Aquatic Biologist (middle) and Devon Francke, Supervisor of Sea Turtle Rehab, are about to give a rescued juvenile green sea turtle, suffering from a lot of the Fibropapillomatosis tumors, fluids at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium Wednesday afternoon. Eventually when the turtle is healthy enough the tumors will be removed with a laser and after it is rehabilitated it will be released back into the wild.  -  The Clearwater Marine Aquarium is launching a $66 million renovation to expand its facilities to take in injured animals and space to host visitors. The aquarium is asking the city for a $5 million grant Thursday to help in the project. American attitudes toward captive animals are changing. Sea World is slipping after scrutiny on the ethics of captive marine life. But CEO David Yates says CMA is different, continuing its mission of rehab and release, it's goal is to promote education, not exploitation. JIM DAMASKE   |   Times
