Detectives with the Broward Sheriff’s Office Robbery Unit are seeking the public’s help to identify the subject in a strong-arm robbery at a business in Deerfield Beach. It all started over a change disagreement, and it was all caught on camera.
Shortly before 5:57 p.m., on Monday, Oct. 24, an adult male wearing a white tank top and black pants entered Tony’s Market located at 5105 North Dixie Highway in Deerfield Beach to buy a black and purple Dutch cigar. According to investigators, the subject was unhappy with the change he received from the cashier. A verbal altercation occurred between the two before the subject left the store.
Moments later, the subject came back with five others. The surveillance video shows the subject jumping the counter grabbing the cashier, throwing him to the ground and holding him down. While the victim was being held down, other subjects also jumped the counter and stole approximately $8,000 dollars from the business before fleeing the scene.
Anyone who can identify the subject in this strong-arm robbery is asked to contact BSO Robbery Detective Mark Copley at 954-321-4738 or submit a tip through the SaferWatch App. If you wish to remain anonymous, please contact Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS (8477), online at, or dial **TIPS (8477) from any cellphone in the United States.
