BREVARD COUNTY • COCOA, FLORIDA – Cocoa police detectives are currently attempting to identify a suspect seen on surveillance video robbing the employees at the Family Dollar, located at 1049 W. King Street.
According to Cocoa Police Public Information Officer Yvonne Martinez, the robbery occurred on March 11 at approximately 3 p.m. The store surveillance video shows the suspect entering the store and handing the employee at the checkout counter a note.
The note demanded money and threatened to “shoot [the place] up.”
“The employee advised she could not open the register without a manager,” said Martinez. “During the exchange, another customer approached the register to pay for items.”
The suspect then took a step back from the counter to allow the cashier to help the other customer check out. After the other customer transaction was completed the cashier complied with the suspect’s request who then fled the store in what the employee said was an older green minivan.
Anyone with information regarding the identity and location of the suspect seen in the video is asked to contact the Central Florida CRIMELINE at 1-800-423-TIPS. Callers will remain anonymous and can be eligible for cash rewards of up to $1,000 in this case.
