Marion County investigators are looking for information that would lead them to an armed man who robbed an Ocala gas station.
The robbery occurred Tuesday at about 8:20 p.m. at the Diamond Oil gas station at 3380 SE Lake Weir Avenue in Ocala.
The suspect was described as a man wearing light pants, a dark hoodie with writing on the chest, black gloves that may have had a Halloween design, dark, tall socks, a greenish-colored mask and sandals. Marion County sheriff’s office Public Information Officer Judge Cochran said the suspect left on foot toward railroad tracks, but no further information on his whereabouts are known.
“We’re hoping people will recognize someone of that style and someone who would probably do something of this nature, as far as the robbery is concerned, and call us, and say, ‘Hey, I know this guy,’ and give us the information that would lead to his arrest,” Cochran said.
The Marion County Sheriff’s Office is asking that people with information call Crime Stoppers at 352-368-7867 or report it at www.ocalacrimestoppers.com. They can also contact Detective Erik Dice at 352-368-3545.
Callers’ names will remain confidential.
Information that leads to the suspect’s arrest could result in a reward of up to $1,000.
