Armed robbery suspects still at-large
Marion County Sheriff’s Office detectives are looking for the public’s help in tracking down the three men responsible for an armed robbery on Tuesday. Spokesman Judge Cochran says the men were caught on tape at the Qwick King on SE Lake Weir Avenue in Ocala.
He says the men are considered dangerous, so if you think you see any of them, call 911. Witnesses say there may be a fourth man involved as a driver, but only three were caught on the video. Cochran says the men took an undisclosed amount of cash and cigarettes.
