Last week, the Broward Sheriff’s Office announced that they believe the 28 robberies of 7-Eleven and other stores were all committed by the same suspect, an armed man wearing saggy pants and a green mask.
The robberies date back to November, but the most recent incident occurred at 4am on Thursday at a 7-Eleven in Oakland Park. No one was injured, but the Broward Sheriff’s office said it has had enough.
Over half of the robberies in Broward County and West Palm County were at 7-Eleven convenience stores. The robber also held up a Subway, a Walgreens, and KFC. 7-Eleven has offered a $10,000 reward for the suspect’s arrest and Crime Stoppers is adding an additional $2,500, bringing the total to $12,500.
Most of the incidents occurred during the early hours of the morning. Surveillance videos show a male between 5 foot 9 and 6 feet tall, weighing between 170 and 180 pounds.
