Caught On Video: Armed Robbers Rip Off Family Dollar Store
South Florida Crime
HALLANDALE BEACH (CBSMiami) – Hallandale Beach Police are looking for two armed robbers who ripped off a Family Dollar store and the entire incident was captured on video.
According to police, two men ran into the Family Dollar, located at 680 W. Hallandale Beach Boulevard on May 11th around 6:45 p.m.
Frightened children ran from the store as the men pointed their guns at the employees’ heads.
“That’s crazy,” said customer Karina Drayton.
The first gunman was wearing a black knit ski mask, jean shorts, black and white high top sneakers, and a distinctive Netherlands soccer jersey with the Lyon logo on the upper left side of the chest, the number 33 on the right sleeve and an unknown symbol on the left sleeve.
He was carrying a large-caliber silver revolver which he used to strike one of his victims in the head.
“If the gun would have went off then what,” asked Drayton.”If I was in that situation, I wouldn’t know what to do.”
The second gunman was wearing a black neck scarf to cover part of his face, jean shorts, black long sleeve shirt and a possible Miami Heat baseball cap with the chrome sticker attached to the lid. He was armed with a black semi-automatic.
The men got away with $290.00 in less than 30 seconds.
They were seen leaving in a greenish or brownish compact SUV, made by either Hyundai or Kia, driven by a woman.
Customers hope the crooks are caught and have some sound advice for them.
“I think it’s just dumb. I think it’s petty.. Get a job,” said Drayton.
