Polk County Sheriff's Robbery detectives are seeking the public's help in identifying a robbery suspect in a business robbery.

Around 2:20 p.m. on Saturday, April 4th, an unknown white male entered the Texaco Food Mart located at 1154 North Galloway Road. He approached the counter, placed his hand under his shirt, and demanded money from the register. The clerk was not certain if the suspect was armed or not, and she complied with his demands. After taking an undisclosed amount of cash, the suspect fled the scene in a burgundy 4-door sedan.

The suspect, seen in video surveillance, is described as a white male in his mid 30's, about 5"4', 110 lbs., with thick, curly brown hair and greyish colored eyes, wearing glasses, a light blue Tshirt, blue jean shorts, and no shoes.

If anyone has any information about this incident they are urged to contact Detective Consuelo Bias at 863.534.6379 or 1.800.226.0344.
