Two bandits on the loose after armed robbery at Ocala liquor store

The Ocala Police Department is asking for help in catching two people who were involved in an armed robbery at a local liquor store Thursday.

Ocala Police are searching for two people who were involved in an armed robbery at A & M discount Beverage last week. A person in a dark hoodie committed the crime, while a man in the store wearing a gray sweatshirt is considered a ‘person of interest.’ The two fled the store in a green sedan, police say.

Another man in a gray sweatshirt who was in the store has been identified by police as a “person of interest” in the case, a police report states, adding that both suspects fled the scene in a green vehicle.

Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call Detective Charles Hunt at (352) 369-7147 or Crime Stoppers at (352) 368-7867.
