PALM BAY, Florida – The Palm Bay Police Department is searching for a suspect who robbed a convenience store Sunday night.

On Sunday at approximately 6:30 p.m., the Palm Bay suspect walked into the Sunoco gas station on Malabar Road and demanded the cashier all the money from the register.

The video shows the man wearing a camouflage bandana with a black neoprene style half ski mask, a large green camouflage army style jacket, black or camouflage shorts and white tennis shoes with black socks.

“During the incident, he also kept his right hand inside his jacket implying he had a firearm,” Lt. Mike Bandish said in a statement.

As the man was leaving the Palm bay Sunoco station, the suspect dropped a bunch of cash on the floor but took the time to reach down and pick it every single bill.

However, the man dropped one bill on the doormat but left it behind.

Anyone with information is asked to call CRIMELINE at 1-800-423-TIPS or CRIMELINE.ORG.
