Detectives have good security camera footage though, and are seeking the public’s help to identify and arrest the suspect.
The man entered the store about 6 a.m. on Friday, May 20, announced that he had a weapon, and then fled the store with merchandise.
The suspect was described as white, 35 to 45 years old, 5 feet inches to 5 feet 5 inches tall, weighing about 250 pounds with brown hair and blue eyes, police said.
He was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, green camouflaged hat, green cargo shorts, black socks, and black shoes. The suspect may have left in a vehicle that was waiting for him near Underoak Court.
FCPD officers searched for the suspect by air and ground for about an hour after the incident but were unable to locate him.
