Volusia County Sheriff’s deputies are looking for a gunman who held up a 7-Eleven store in Deltona Sunday. Volusia Sheriff’s spokesperson Gary Davidson says no shots were fired and no one was hurt in the robbery at around 3 Sunday morning at the convenience store at Debary Avenue and Providence Boulevard. The store clerk told deputies that the suspect came into the store carrying a rifle and demanding money. The clerk opened the register and an undisclosed amount of cash was handed over. The suspect then ran out the front door and behind the store. Davidson says ten Sheriff’s deputies, including K-9 units and the Sheriff’s Office helicopter, were searching for the suspect within minutes of the robbery report. However, the suspect was not found. The suspect is described as between 5-6 and 5-8 in height, with a thin build, wearing all black clothing and possibly having a Hispanic accent.
Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call the Sheriff’s Office or Crime Stoppers of Northeast Florida, toll-free, at (888) 277-TIPS. Residents can also text a tip by texting “TIP231”, along with their message, to CRIMES. Tipsters who provide information to Crime Stoppers will remain anonymous and can qualify for a reward of up to $1,000. Davidson emphasized that anyone who prefers to talk directly to a deputy can call the Sheriff’s Office at (386) 860-7030. However, only callers to Crime Stoppers will qualify for a reward.
