Boca Raton police investigate armed robberies at a BP, Walgreens

PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. - Boca Raton police hope newly released surveillance video of an armed robbery at a gas station leads them to a suspect.

The gunman went behind the counter at a BP at 5440 West Glades Road Wednesday night and pointed his weapon at the cashier.

An employee described him as a male wearing a black shirt, blue jeans, gloves and a white mask.

A short time later someone stuck up the Walgreens at 1851 Clint Moore Road.

A witness described him as a black male, 5'9" to 5'10" tall, wearing a black jacket, blue jeans, black hat, and a white or tan mask.

An employee told police the store was robbed on July 11th and it could have been the same person.

Boca Raton Police detectives ask anyone with information to call them at (561) 338-1264 or Palm Beach County Crime Stoppers at (800) 458-TIPS.
