Scooter Riding Armed Robbers Strike Circle K

Deputies are looking for help to identify two suspects wanted in connection with the case.

Hillsborough County Sheriff’s deputies are looking for help to identify two men who robbed a Circle K in Carrollwood yesterday and then fled on black scooter.

The men entered the 15527 N. Dale Mabry Highway store just before 6 a.m. yesterday, Nov. 2, and forced the clerk to the floor at gunpoint after making him open the cash register. The men, who were armed with a semi-automatic handgun, then took an undisclosed amount of money from the register and safe area.

Once they had the cash, the suspects fled the store, riding a black scooter, according to a sheriff’s office media release.

The men are described as white males. The first one is between 22 and 25 years old and is between 5 feet, 7 inches and 5 feet, 9 inches tall. He weighs between 175 and 185 pounds and has a medium build. He was last seen wearing a hoodie with a brown plaid jacket and jeans.

The second suspect is between 18 and 20 years old. He is about 5-foot, 7 inches and 5-foot, 8 inches in height. He is between 140 and 150 pounds and has a thin build. He was last seen wearing a NY baseball cap, black pants and a black jacket.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call the sheriff’s office at 813-247-8200. To be eligible for a cash reward, tips can also be submitted via Crime Stoppers at 1-800-873-TIPS (8477).
