Manatee County, Florida - Deputies are looking for the man who robbed a Manatee County 7-Eleven early Monday morning.
Early this morning, the Manatee County Sheriff's deputies responded to a robbery at the 7-Eleven located at 4451 Tallevast Rd.
The robber reportedly entered the 7-Eleven located at 4451 Tallevast Road and asked for a box of Newport cigarettes. Once the clerk put the cigarettes on the counter, the suspect then stated, "This is a robbery. I don't want to hurt anyone. I'm already wanted. I know I'm on video. I don't care."
No weapon was shown or implied, but the clerk handed over approximately $75 for fear of one.
The suspect then fled to a small, dark colored SUV on Lockwood Ridge Road.
