[ARCHIVED] Beach Park Armed Robbery

BP Armed Robbery 1

On October 15, 2019, at approximately 9:50PM, Lake County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to an armed robbery at the 7-Eleven, 37763 North Green Bay Road, Beach Park.  Sheriff’s Deputies arrived and determined at least two individuals committed the armed robbery.

The preliminary investigation shows just before 9:50PM, two male subjects (both described as African American, approximately 5’07” – 5’09,” between the ages of 18 and 20, both wearing hooded sweatshirts) entered the store and confronted the clerk, asking the clerk to make change.  One of the two individuals displayed a semi-automatic pistol and demanded money from the cash register.  

An undisclosed amount of cash was stolen along with cigarettes.  Both subjects fled on foot following the robbery.  A K9 track was conducted and ended in the area of Northern Avenue and Yorkhouse Road in Beach Park, where the offenders likely entered a vehicle.  

The case remains under investigation by the Lake County Sheriff’s Criminal Investigations Division.  Anyone who recognizes either of the subjects in the attached images is encouraged to call sheriff’s investigators at 847-377-4147 or Lake County CrimeStoppers at 847-662-2222
