Polk detectives look for armed robbery suspect

Posted: Updated:
LAKELAND (FOX 13) -

The sheriff's office is searching for a man who robbed a Lakeland Circle K at gunpoint.

Detectives are using surveillance video released Monday to help in the search. It shows the man, described as a white male, walk into the store and threaten store clerks and customers with a silver semi-automatic handgun.

It happened early Sunday morning at the location at 3808 Deeson Road.

Detectives say the man entered the store and demanded that a customer stand nearby. Then he allegedly threatened to shoot one of the clerks if they did not open a register.

The man left with an undisclosed amount of money, the sheriff's office said.

He was wearing a black, long-sleeved T-shirt, blue jeans, white sneakers, black gloves and a camouflage hunting or ski mask.

If anyone has information on the suspect's whereabouts, they are asked to call (863) 298-6200 ext. 1237.
