The robbery, captured on surveillance at three different angles, happened at a Metro PCS store at 3934 Pembroke Road.
According to Broward Sheriff’s Office, around 1:25 PM on July 1, a gray or dark-colored 2010 to 2014 Nissan Maxima pulled up and parked in front of the store. The driver remains in the car and two men run out and into the store. Both men had their faces covered—one was armed with a black semi-automatic rifle with a scope.
The two men are seen on video entering the store yelling, “Give me the register.” One man pointed the rifle and ordered the employees and four customers, including a baby, not to move. The employees appear not to hesitate, handing three cash drawers to the robbers.

A man, who works nearby and did not want to be identified, said the store has been robbed before.
“This is scary and it isn’t the first time. It happened more than once,” he said.
Detectives are looking for a man, approximately 6’ tall with a very thin build. He used a black t-shirt to cover his face and was wearing a black t-shirt and light-colored pants—he was the one carrying the assault rifle. The second suspect is a male, approximately 5’8” with a thin build. He was wearing a black or dark gray shirt with gray pants.MORE NEWS: Sunshine Saturday, Heating Up Before The Cold Front
