Man robs Family Dollar store, threatens to kill clerk

Miami Gardens police try to ID robber

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. – Police are trying to identify a man who robbed a Family Dollar store in Miami Gardens.

The armed robbery occurred last Wednesday night at the store on Northwest 183rd Street.

Surveillance video showed the man waiting patiently in line at the counter.

When it was his turn, the man flashed the handle of a gun and demanded money from the cash register, police said.

"Don't make it hard for yourself," the man told the clerk, police said. "I will (expletive) kill you."

The man then lunged over the counter, grabbed an undisclosed amount of cash and got away.

He didn't seem to mind that there were surveillance cameras throughout the store and a notice that can be heard over the loudspeaker each time someone enters.

"All activities are being monitored and recorded for your safety," the message states.

Anyone who recognizes the man is asked to call police.
