Florida – Update: The Flagler County Sheriff’s Office is working with investigators from the St. Augustine Police Department after a man robbed a CVS on Sunday – a man Deputies think also robbed a Palm Coast McDonald’s the day before.
Surveillance video caught the man fleeing from the store at 2703 N Ponce DeLeon St around 8 PM on February 12. The suspect was a white man between 50 and 60 years old, and he had a knife in the sleeve of his sweatshirt.
Investigators think that based on the suspect description and other similarities in the 2 cases, they’re dealing with the same person who robbed the McDonald’s at 6030 E SR-100 in Palm Coast just before 11 PM on Saturday, February 11.
FCSO worked with a witness of the McDonald’s robbery and they’ve released 2 composite images of the suspect, 1 with glasses the other without.
“This guy is someone we want to get off the street now, and put behind bars before someone gets hurt,” said Flagler County Sheriff Rick Staly. “If you know who he is, give our investigators a call and help us lock him up.”

The Flagler County Sheriff’s Office is looking for the man who robbed a Palm Coast McDonalds with a large knife.
It was around 11 PM on Saturday, February 11, when the man approached a cashier at the McDonalds at 6030 E State Road 100 with a large knife and said, “this is a robbery, give me the money.” He fled from the restaurant with almost $350.
The robbery happened as the store was about to close and no customers were inside when the suspect came in. The cashier did as the suspect asked and no one was hurt during the robbery.
The suspect’s been described as a white man, between 50 and 60 years old, with gray hair and a mustache. At the time of the robbery, he was wearing a tan jacket, possibly a striped shirt, and an olive green knit hat. Witnesses told deputies he fled to a waiting vehicle – a small, red, newer-model sedan. The getaway vehicle then drove towards I-95. Witnesses said they couldn’t tell if anyone else was in the car.
“This is a crime against our community. Please help us find this suspect,” said Sheriff Rick Staly. “If you know the person who did this, please call us.”
Anyone with information should call FCSO at 386-313-4911, or Crime Stoppers at 1-888-277-TIPS, where you will remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.
