Mims Discount Beverage Store Held Up
BREVARD COUNTY • MIMS, FLORIDA – Brevard County Sheriff’s Office deputies are searching for an armed robber who held up a store in Mims on Sunday night.
Sheriff’s Agent Michael Traylor of the North Precinct General Crimes Unit said deputies responded to a reported armed robbery with a firearm Sunday evening at the Mims Discount Beverage Store at 4109 State Road 46 in Mims.
About 7:50 p.m. Sunday a black male entered the store, Traylor said.
“After a brief time in the bathroom, the black male approached the clerk from behind, placing what the clerk believed was a firearm into the small of the clerk’s back and demanded the money from the cash register,” he said. “The clerk complied with the suspect’s demands, providing the suspect with an undetermined amount of money.”
The suspect then departed the store without incident.
He is described as a younger black male, about 18 to 30 years of age and was wearing a black hooded sweat shirt with a white liner, a black or dark blue “A” style tank, blue boxers, blue jean shorts and black shoes.
The suspect is estimated to be between 5-foot-6 to 6-feet in height with a slender build.
Traylor said he was driving a late-model white or cream colored Mitsubishi four door, possibly a “Gallant,” which he used to leave the scene. The vehicle has a small rectangle sticker affixed to the driver’s side bottom corner of the windshield.
