TAMARAC, Fla. -

Surveillance video captured an armed robbery at a Walgreens in Tamarac on Wednesday morning.

The robbery happened at 6401 W. Commercial Boulevard about 6:44 a.m.

In the surveillance video, a heavy-set woman wearing shorts, sneakers, and a large sweatshirt points a gun at the cashier. She hands him a bag and demands the cash from the register.

The woman then leaves in an older-model, white sport utility vehicle. The SUV, possibly a Dodge Durango or Jeep Cherokee, has a roof rack, a sun roof, and the passenger-side brake light is out.

Anyone with information is asked to call BSO at 954-321-4270.
