Fort Lauderdale Hit By Armed Robberies

Fort Lauderdale is shaken up by a string of shootings and robberies committed by who police believe to be one man. The first incident occurred at a Subway on Sunrise Blvd. The individual leaped over the counter and discharged his firearm randomly while demanding the register till. The second incident took place at the Sea Beach Plaza Hotel. A black male entered and gained the cash from the counter as he pointed a gun at him forcing the clerk to comply. Police are still looking for the suspect and can use any help the community can supply.

He is described as a man in his mid 20s, 5′ 8″ and around 135 pounds with a scar on his right side of face. He was seen driving a ’96 Nissan Maxima with dark tint. Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Donald Gauntner at 954-828-5527 or Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS.

Robbery and burglary are felonies. Florida Statute defines robbery as:

the taking of money or other property which may be the subject of larceny from the person or custody of another, with intent to either permanently or temporarily deprive the person or the owner of the money or other property, when in the course of the taking there is the use of force, violence, assault, or putting in fear.

Being armed only adds more to the final sentence and results in:

a felony of the first degree, punishable by imprisonment for a term of years not exceeding life imprisonment or as provided in s. 775.082, s. 775.083, or s. 775.084.

Thats a first degree felony!!
