Two masked men robbed a Crestview area convenience store at gunpoint overnight and the suspects later were spotted by Santa Rosa County deputies near Milton but bailed from the car and managed to escape. The clerk says the pair walked in about thirty minutes after midnight at the Tom Thumb at 802 Ferdon Boulevard North. One of the men, a black male dressed all in black and wearing a surgical mask, pointed a gun at him and demanded money. The other individual, who appeared to be a white male also wearing a face mask, was believed to be acting as the lookout. After getting a small amount of money and taking personal items from the clerk, the men ran out to a dark colored Jeep Cherokee and took off. Deputies in Santa Rosa County later spotted the suspects’ car in Milton but the two men bailed from the car and ran. Anyone with information on the armed robbery is asked to call the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office at 850.651.7400 or contact Emerald Coast Crime Stoppers at 850.863.TIPS,, or via the P3 Tips mobile application.
