Update: SCSO still searching for suspect in convenience store robberies

Live Oak —

The Suwannee County Sheriff’s Office is still searching for the suspect believed to have robbed two Suwannee County convenience stores at gunpoint, according to Sheriff Tony Cameron.

The young white male, around six feet tall, was last seen wearing a tan colored hoodie when he robbed the Bob’s One Stop Store in the Houston area of Suwannee County at gunpoint Monday, Nov. 18. He was also wearing a mask of some sort up to his nose and wearing light colored blue jeans. The suspect is also wanted for questioning in an armed robbery at a the Wellborn General Store on Saturday, Nov. 16, according to authorities.

According to authorities, the suspect reportedly walked into Bob’s One Stop Store, sometime after 11 a.m. Nov. 18, showed a handgun of some type to the store clerk and demanded money. As the clerk was trying to comply, the suspect jumped the counter, ordered the clerk to a side room and took items that are currently undisclosed.

On Saturday, Nov. 16, around 8:45 p.m., Deputy Sheriff Michael Landis reported to the Wellborn General Store where it was learned that at closing time, a white male, around six feet tall and 160-180 pounds opened the door and pointed a handgun in the face of the clerk’s boyfriend, who was helping close the store.

The suspect demanded money. After obtaining an undisclosed amount of money and other items, the suspect, still pointing the gun toward the victims, left the store. 

The Suwannee County Sheriff’s Office is asking for anyone who has any source of information to give them a call at 386-362-2222.
