Nov 10, 2012 (Sun Sentinel - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) --
Broward Sheriff's detectives are searching for two men, armed with an assault rifle, who robbed a Pompano Beach pawn shop.
They forced customers onto the floor, including a pregnant woman and a man holding a child, then ordered employees to give them cash, investigators said.
Surveillance video recorded the robbery, around 2:53 p.m. on Oct. 27, at the Value Pawn in the 3100 block of N. Dixie Highway.
As one suspect waved the assault rifle at the frightened customers the other sprayed mace at three victims. No customers or employees were seriously injured, investigators said.
The two men escaped with cash, a gold chain and various personal items from victims.
The first suspect is described as 5-foot-9 and 170 pounds. He was wearing a blue jacket and long, dark pants. He wore long dreads, but witnesses said they may have been fake.
The second suspect is about 5-foot-11 and 175 pounds with dark skin and short hair. He wore a black T-shirt, red shorts and a blue baseball cap. Both seem to be about 25.
Investigators are urging anyone with information to contact robbery Detective Armando Enrique at 954-321-4270 or Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493- 8477.
