MANATEE COUNTY - A store was robbed by a suspect who didn't seem to care if he got caught.

It happened around 1:25 am Monday at the 7-11 located in the 4400 block of Tallevast Road.

According to Manatee County deputies, the man initially asked the clerk for a pack of cigarettes. Just after the clerk placed them on the counter, the suspect demanded money, saying he knew he was on camera and he was already wanted, but he didn't care.

There was no mention of a weapon, but the employee gave him $75 out of fear.

The suspect then fled to a waiting small dark colored SUV on Lockwood Ridge Road. He is described as a white male, 20 to 30 years old with a full beard and about 6 feet tall and 200 pounds. He was wearing blue jeans, a black shirt, and a tan hat.
