Scooby Doo robbery

Instead of help­ing that quar­tet of kids fight vil­lains, Scooby-Doo has joined the wrong side of the law in St. Peters­burg, Florida.

Detec­tives say that a sus­pect wear­ing a dis­tinc­tive brown Scooby-Doo ski mask robbed the Farm Store at 5511 Dr. MLK Street North on Decem­ber 9. They hope that some­one may rec­og­nize the mask and pro­vide infor­ma­tion on the suspect’s identity.

At about 3:22 p.m., the sus­pect entered the store and pointed a black semi-automatic hand­gun at the clerk, who allowed the sus­pect to take an unspec­i­fied amount of cash from the reg­is­ter. No sus­pect vehi­cle was seen.

The video doesn’t pro­vide a clear view of the suspect’s face, but does show him dis­guised as the famed quasi-Great Dane.

The sus­pect is described as a black male from 18 to 25 years old, 5’8″ to 5’10″ tall, 160 to 180 pounds, wear­ing a black short sleeve shirt over a white long sleeve shirt, beige knee-length shorts and black sneak­ers with white trim. He also wore gloves with a white design on the back and may have been wear­ing white ear buds for an MP3 player dur­ing the robbery.

Any­one with infor­ma­tion is asked to call the St. Peters­burg Police Depart­ment at (727) 893‑7780 or use the Tip Line at (727) 892‑5000.

A sur­veil­lance video of the rob­bery has been released by the police depart­ment at
