DANIA BEACH, Fla. – Surveillance video captured an armed robbery last month at a convenience store in Dania Beach.

The incident was reported just before midnight March 31.

According to Broward sheriff's deputies, two masked men entered the Express Gas Food Mart at 3401 Griffin Road while an employee was mopping the floor and another was standing behind the cash register.

Video shows the robbers pointing a gun at the employees. The man who was mopping the floor walks away from the counter and keeps mopping in another part of the store.

Deputies said the other clerk complied with the thieves' orders to open the register, and one of the men grabbed the cash and then looked over the counter to see if there was anything of value to take from a cabinet below the register.

Both robbers concealed their identities by wearing black knit masks, hooded sweaters and dark-colored pants and gloves.

Anyone with information about their identities is asked to call Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS. A reward of up to $3,000 is being offered for information that leads to an arrest and conviction.
