Polk County Sheriff’s Office Robbery detectives are asking for the public’s help in a Business Robbery investigation. 

At approximately 2:20 pm, on Friday, June 6, 2014, a black male subject entered the Tasty Cakes Discount Bakery Store located at 2226 S Combee Road, Lakeland, and demanded money from the clerk.

The suspect was wearing all black clothing and a black “fishing” style hat with a circular brim. The suspect’s black tee-shirt had bold white lettering across the front of the shirt.
