Lake County Sheriff’s Deputies responded about 11:35 a.m. Saturday, April 20, 2024, to a report of an armed robbery that just occurred at a convenience store in the 37700 block of North Green Bay Road in Beach Park. Sheriff’s deputies arrived and spoke to the store clerk, who was uninjured.

Preliminary investigation shows a male adult, possibly of Hispanic descent, was wearing a face covering, yellow coat, tan pants, and gloves. He entered the store and displayed a firearm, and demanded money from the store clerk. The offender ran from the store after obtaining cash from the clerk’s register.

A Lake County Sheriff’s K-9 Team responded and tracked the scent of the man, however, the scent ended at the dead end of a roadway, indicating the offender likely entered a vehicle. Sheriff’s evidence technicians recovered evidence that will be sent to the crime lab for analysis.

The armed robbery remains under investigation by the Lake County Sheriff’s Criminal Investigations Division.
