HOLLYWOOD, FLA. (WSVN) – Hollywood Police believe a man caught on camera robbing a gas station may be responsible for an attempted robbery at a pizza shop.
Surveillance video showed a crook hopping over the counter of an Exxon gas station along Sheridan Street and North 64th Avenue, Tuesday.
The man could be seen in the video fully disguised with a mask, sunglasses, baseball cap and gloves.
The video footage showed the armed robber forcing an employee to open the cash register.
Once the register was opened, the man could be seen in the video stashing the cash into a box.
The video showed the man then forced the employee down to the ground to tie him up before taking off with more than $1,000.
Surveillance video of an attempted armed robbery on Monday showed a man who police believe is the the same crook.
The man could be seen in the video walking into a Little Caesars off North State Road Seven and Thomas Street.
The video showed the armed robber in this case was also fully disguised in a similar fashion.
However, an employee walked away from the robber to the back of the store, so the crook eventually left the pizza shop empty-handed.

Remember, you can always remain anonymous, and you may be eligible for a $3,000 reward.Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp. All rights reserved.
