Marion sheriff searching for bandit who robbed delivery person at minimart

Marion County sheriff’s deputies are searching for a bandit who recently robbed a delivery person at a Citra minimart.

Marion County sheriff’s deputies are searching for the man pictured above, who is accused of robbing a delivery person at a Citra Circle K on Sept. 11.

The man who is accused of robbing a delivery person at a Citra Circle K was seen driving the dark-colored four-door sedan pictured above.

The man, pictured above, on Sept. 11 robbed the milk delivery person at the Circle K at 12995 N U.S. Hwy. 441 at gunpoint. He arrived at the store in a dark-colored four-door vehicle, which is pictured at right, a sheriff’s office report states.

The man entered the store and attempted to buy a scratch-off lottery ticket. He then robbed the delivery person at gunpoint and took his wallet. But once he realized there was no cash in the wallet, he threw it back at the victim and fled the scene heading south on U.S. Hwy. 441, the report says.

Anyone with information about the crime or the suspect is asked to contact the sheriff’s office at (352) 732-9111. Those wishing to make an anonymous tip can contact Crime Stoppers of Marion County at (352) 368-STOP (7867). Tips can also be submitted at www.ocalacrimestoppers.com.
