Spring Hill Dollar General robber may be connected to other central Florida holdups

SPRING HILL - Hernando County deputies are looking for a man who robbed a Dollar General store Tuesday while hinting he had a gun.

Detectives with the Sheriff's Office believe the man may be connected to other armed robberies recently committed around central Florida.

The holdup occurred just before 9 p.m. inside the store at 3499 Mariner Blvd. in Spring Hill, the Sheriff's Office said.

Eyewitnesses told deputies a man entered the store, demanded money from the cashier and implied he was carrying a handgun. The witnesses described him as a white man wearing a black t-shirt, a dark jacket with the hood pulled over his head, black shorts and white, calf-high socks. The Sheriff's Office released an image from a security camera showing the man.

Deputies said the robber fled the store on foot before getting into a nearby parked vehicle and driving away.

Anyone with information can call the Sheriff's Office at (352)754-6830 or Hernando County Crime Stoppers at (866) 990-TIPS and www.hernandocountycrimestoppers.com.
