Two Armed Suspects Hold Up Store In Hillsborough County

Posted: Updated:
HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, FL (WFLA) -

Hillsborough County deputies searched for two suspected robbers Sunday night after they held an AT&T store in the Citrus Park area.

According to Cristal Bermudez of Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office, a 911 call was made at 5:02pm in regards to the armed robbery of the AT&T Store at 12891 Citrus Park Drive in Hillsborough County.

Sheriff's deputies said the clerk could only get a good look at one of the two suspects during the robbery.

According to Bermudez, one of the suspected robbers was described to be in his 20's, about 5'9", 180 lbs., tan complexion, possibly Hispanic, long pants, blue hoodie, blue baseball cap and something black covering his face. 

Investigators believe that suspect walked into the store with a chrome handgun, possible a revolver. He walked toward the clerk and escorted him to the back of the store.  After turning the clerk around, he whistled for the other suspect. 

According to Bermudez, both suspects walked the clerk to the safe and forced him to open it. The suspects took cell phones and an undisclosed amount of cash.  They ordered the clerk to get on his knees as they escaped out the back door.

 Sheriff's deputies brought in a K-9 to track the suspects but their scent was lost.  They believe the robbers had an escape vehicle.

That's all we have at this time!
