Tallahassee, Florida - December 13, 2011 - 2:18pm -

This morning at approximately 10:33a.m. a citizen called TPD to report a suspicious male in the parking lot of Bills Bookstore on Tennessee Street. The caller said there was a light skinned black male, wearing a long black T-shirt, black pants and putting on a ski mask in the parking lot. She said she last saw him run around to the back of the store.

Officers were dispatched to the store, but due to the time delay, the suspect was no longer on scene. The follow up investigation revealed that as the male entered the store, the store employees (6 in total) saw him coming and went to the back of the store and locked themselves in a safe area. It is unknown if the male was able to take anything from the store at this time, before he fled on foot. The investigation revealed he ran to a dark purple or burgundy dodge vehicle with the two back windows having tint, and a spare tire on the front. There was reportedly a black female driving the vehicle.

Community members with information about the case are asked to call TPD at 891-4200 or the Big Bend Crime Stoppers at 574-TIPS. Crime Stoppers does not want your name, just your information and you may be eligible for a cash reward. Please remember, if you see something, say something, do something.

    Why was TPD delayed when they were called BEFORE the robber went into the store? We're they all all at lunch or something ? Maybe there should be some zone patrolling going on around here.

      doesnt take long for someone to walk around the store. even if tpd got there in 2 minutes, they wouldnt have made it in time.

    Hey I'm just a poor country boy with a hs diploma . Why is this about FAMU ? And what part of a spare on the front do some people not understand ? Those that don't understand must be studying to be a lawyer .

      The spare was on the front. I took this to mean the front of the car(maybe attached to the front bumper). Not a donut spare installed on the front. Either I'm reading it wrong or it's written poorly.

    Reply to HulkHogan Well HulkHogan what do know about FAMU other than what you read in the paers, see in the news. Your spirit in what you wrote just make you sound like you're not happy with your self so take every opportunity to tear FAMU down that you can get. Everything is every where Robbing, Stealing, Killing, Rapping, Drugs, Child Rapping, Killing Of each other (wife-husband) and all you can do is talk about FAMU really get a life. I pray that you find some happiness with in yourself and focus on living instead of dying.

      to play the devil's advocate...FAMU has been on local AND national news a lot lately for negative reasons, while those other stories haven't. sure is an embarrassment for out community.
