Odd News

Odd News turns its gaze back to our favorite state - Florida. The Sun Sentinel is reporting on a robber who waited patiently to rob a CVS in Pompano Beach, and was so calm and quiet about it that customers continued shopping around him, unaware they were witnesses to a holdup.

The crook, who is yet to be identified, walked into the pharmacy earlier this month, proceeded to show a gun and demanded money from a young clerk. The employee told the gunman that she needed to check with her manager first. Amazingly, the man waited for the manager to come to the front of the store, and even hung around as the cashier helped ring up an actual customer.

WSVN 7 News reports that the store manager finally showed up and then was shown the gun and given the same demand for the money. However, he and the gunman then had to wait for the aforementioned customer’s order to be taken care of. The customer walked away with his purchased items, then the thief got his money.

It seems it was all pretty low-key. The station spoke with Broward Sherriff’s Office spokesperson Dani Moschella, who told the station, “He was fairly calm. It's likely no one else in the store even knew that he was armed.” Police are asking anyone with useful information regarding the matter to call them at 954-493-TIPS.
