Armed robbery at convenience store in Lutz

Posted: Updated:

Hillsborough Sheriff's Detectives are trying to figure out who held up a convenience store in Lutz at gunpoint Sunday night.

Investigators say the gunman showed up at the Handy Food Store at 14601 Livingston Avenue in Lutz, wearing a hoodie, and armed with a black, semi-automatic handgun. The robber pointed the gun at the clerk and demanded cash. Once the robber had the money, he ran from the store on foot.

A surveillance video posted on YouTube shows the hold-up, which appears to have lasted only 40 seconds.

Anyone with information that can help investigators should call the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office at 247-8200. You can also leave a tip with Crime Stoppers by calling 1-800-873-TIPS (8477), report anonymously online at, or text "CSTB plus your tip" to C-R-I-M-E-S (274637).
