Firearm wielding female on the run after robbing auto parts store
Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers is asking for the public’s help identifying and tracking down an unknown female who robbed an O’Reilly Auto Parts store at gunpoint last night.
Just before 9:30 p.m. on Friday, October 28, a white or light skinned Hispanic female entered the store, located at 15681 San Carlos Boulevard, pointing a black firearm at two store employees and demanding all the cash in the registers. After reiterating that “This is for real, yo,” the employees emptied the registers, at which point the female fled on foot on San Carlos Boulevard in an unknown direction. A K-9 track found several of the items worn by the woman during the robbery.
She is described as between 18 and 22 years of age, 5’7” to 5’9”, with a thin build. She was last seen wearing a grey hooded sweatshirt, and a black mask or shirt which covered her face.
Anyone with information on the identity and whereabouts of the gun toting female is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780-TIPS (8477). All callers will remain anonymous and will be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000. Tips may also be made online at www.southwestfloridacrimestoppers.com or by submitting a tip on the P3 mobile app.
Note: There is no video or surveillance stills available at this time.
