PORT CHARLOTTE — Charlotte County Sheriff’s Major Crimes Unit detectives are asking the public for information about an armed robber and a white pickup possibly involved in a Monday morning armed robbery in Port Charlotte. CCSO received a call at 10 a.m. of the armed robbery at We Buy Gold & Diamonds, 3806 Tamiami Trail. The owner said a man entered his business with a revolver and demanded money. The robber then left on foot toward the rear of the building. Deputies, detectives, K-9 and the CCSO helicopter responded but were unable to locate the subject.
The owner described the robber as a white male, 5-foot-6 to 5-foot-7 tall, about 130 pounds, wearing a gray skull cap with cut eye holes, green Army camouflage pants, and a long-sleeve gray shirt. Just before the robber entered the store, a full-size white pickup exited from between the buildings. If anyone has information about the armed robber or the white pickup, please call CCSO Detective Richard Nix at 941-639-2101, or CrimeStoppers at 800-780-TIPS (8477).
