EUSTIS, Florida — Eustis Police are looking for a man who robbed a local gas station with a shotgun and a handgun and fired three shots early Tuesday evening.
A man entered Shell, 1905 North State Road 19 with a shotgun and a handgun and his face covered, around 6:30 p.m. said Eustis Police Officer Lauren Brown. He is described as white, bald, wearing a black leather jacket, khaki pants and a Jason-style hockey mask. The man robbed the clerk of cash at the register and took the clerk’s cell phone and car keys, Brown said.
He left through the front door, went around the building and fired three shots from the handgun, Brown said. He then fled in the clerk’s vehicle, a black, four-door Mazda 6. He was last seen eastbound on County Road 44.
If you have information on the robbery call Eustis Police at 352-357-4121.
