Video: Surveillance Video: Slippery female robber gets away

ATLANTIS, Florida (CBS12) - Police are searching for a woman who -- thinking she was alone with the cash register -- took an opportunity to rob a Florida gas station.

Surveillance cameras captured the entire crime at the Chevron gas station at Congress and Lantana. 

WATCH: Crystal-clear footage of the thief in action

You'll see the lady bandit walk  up to the counter and, thinking she's alone, try to get behind the counter.

She crawls cat-like through a glass enclosure to reach the register, checks a room out of the camera's view, and returns to the register and spends about half a minute carefully navigating the computer register's menu to open the cash drawer.

Scooping up the cash, she makes a dramatic getaway from the store clerk, who appeared just as she was about to wrap up. She lost a flip-flop in the fracas, and the clerk hit the floor when he lost his grip on her leg.

She's a white female in her 20s-30s wearing tight-fitting blue shorts with a white belt and tight-fitting pink shirt. She has shoulder-length, straight dark hair.

Atlantis police are enhancing surveillance footage of the gas pumps to get a clear image of the license plate on the SUV she drove.

It's not clear what the clerk was doing while the robber went behind the counter.
