VENICE, Fla. (WWSB) - Surveillance video shows an armed robbery taking place at the 7-Eleven on East Venice Avenue in Venice last week.
Police say around 2:30am on August 15, four men disguised in heavy clothing entered the store and stole cash and cigarettes. Police say that the store clerk told them that the men threatened to shoot her if she didn’t cooperate.
The suspects drove away in a silver sedan.
This incident is very similar to a robbery at a 7-Eleven in Manatee County that took place the same day, just hours later. The suspects were dressed similarly when they robbed the Bradenton store. More details on that robbery here.
