The attached video surveillance photos are of a "person of interest" detectives are seeking in two armed robberies that occurred at Lakeland gas stations last week. Detectives have already identified and arrested William David Mounts as the suspect who robbed the clerks at both stores, and the attached photos are of the person they believe was driving the getaway vehicle during the robberies. He is believed to be in the Lakeland or Plant City area.
The first robbery occurred just after midnight/during the early morning hours at 12:39 a.m. on Saturday, February 16, 2013. A masked suspect armed with a silver colored semi-automatic handgun robbed the Circle K Gas Station located at County Line Road and Cornett Road in Lakeland.
The second robbery occurred around 10:02 p.m. later that evening, on Saturday, February 16, 2013. A similarly masked and armed suspect robbed the BP Gas Station at Pipkin Road and Yates Road in Lakeland.
If anyone has information about this person of interest, they are urged to contact the Polk County Sheriff's Office at 863.298.6200.
