Surveillance video shows armed Arcadia robbery

Surveillance video shows an armed robbery at a computer store in Arcadia.

The robbery happened Sunday at Computers and More on Brevard Avenue, according to the Arcadia Police Department. The suspect demanded cash from the register and threatened to kill the store clerk if she did not give him her car keys.

The suspect, who got away with $1,400 in cash, also took car keys from one of the customers in the store.

“I told him I don’t have a car, that’s whenever he puts the gun in my face. He says ‘Give me your keys or I will kill you,'” store clerk Rebecca Pelham said. “He walks over to one of the customers, says ‘Give me your car keys.'”

Police later found the customer’s stolen car, but the suspect remains at large.

“Every time I close my eyes I see the whole thing going down in my head, and think what if something would have happened?” Pelham said.

Pelham hopes the surveillance video will help investigators find the suspect.

“I hope that word gets around, that maybe the video gets shared and somebody will come forward and we can put this guys away,” Pelham said.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Arcadia Police Department at 863-993-4660.
