LAUDERDALE LAKES, FL – Broward Sheriff’s Office robbery detectives released surveillance video of three male subjects involved in an armed robbery in Lauderdale Lakes on March 10. According to authorities, the cameras captured the first subject entering the store just before 4:47 p.m. that Friday. He was wearing a blue, white and black jacket with black pants. Initially, that subject pretended to be interested in buying jewelry. A few moments later, the other two subjects entered the store and that is when the first subject produced a handgun.
The video shows the subject pointing the handgun toward the employees of the store. All three subjects rushed behind the counter and forced the employees to open the cash register. Another angle of the cameras captured the moment one of the subjects smashed one of the display cases and began stealing the items inside. After committing their crime, the three subjects fled the scene with an undisclosed amount of cash and jewelry in a blue four-door KIA with Florida tag QFPL03.
The second subject was wearing a gray hoodie with light blue jeans. The third subject was wearing a green Adidas jacket with black pants. All three were wearing masks. Broward Sheriff’s Office and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) will be working jointly in this investigation.
