Commercial Armed Robbery

(Miami-Dade County, FL) -- 

The Miami-Dade Police Department’s Robbery Bureau is seeking the assistance of the community in identifying and/or locating a woman who robbed a drugstore at 8665 Bird Road of just over $1,000 last week.

Detectives say that shortly after 1:00 on the afternoon of Monday, June 13, the subject, wearing a blue hoodie pulled over her head and a pair of large sunglasses, entered the store and picked up several items.  She approached a female cashier as if to pay for items.  As the cashier opened the register to complete the transaction, the subject placed her hand inside her jacket, implying that she had a weapon. She demanded that the cashier give her all the money in the register.  The subject then exited the store and fled on foot.

Video surveillance footage of the robbery may be obtained from the FTP site.
