Santa Rosa County Deputies were dispatched to an armed robbery on Tuesday morning at the Circle K at 3804 Garcon Point Rd. According to a Sheriff's Office release, two black males entered the location through a back door and pointed a gun at the clerk. The clerk was ordered to a back office where the second black male suspect was waiting. The clerk was unable to open the safe. The suspects then proceeded to the front register, where they ordered the clerk to give them the money from the register.
The suspects then took several cartons of cigarettes and ordered the clerk back to the office where the safe was physically removed from a cabinet and loaded into a garbage cart. The suspects exited the store through a back door and left the scene.
One suspect was wearing a grey hooded sweatshirt, dark pants and a white mask. The second suspect wore blue sweatshirt and dark pants.
The investigation is still ongoing at this time. The Santa Rosa County Sheriff’s Office is looking for anyone who may have any information about this incident. Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 437-STOP.
