‘Armed and dangerous suspects’ on loose near Burger King in The Villages

The Sumter County Sheriff’s Office is looking for two suspects considered armed and dangerous who are wanted in connection with a robbery at a Villages fast-food restaurant early Saturday morning.

Two black males are being sought in connection with an armed robbery early Saturday morning at the Burger King restaurant in The Villages at 3630 Wedgewood Lake.

Deputies from the Sumter County Sheriff’s Office were called to the Burger King at 3630 Wedgewood Lane at about 7:30 a.m. When they arrived, employees told them that two robbers had “emptied the cash registers” and fled with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Three employees and one customer were in the eatery at the time of the robbery, the sheriff’s office report states.

The first suspect is described as a black male wearing tan pants, black shoes, a black sweater and a red shirt wrapped around his head. The second suspect is a black male wearing dark blue jeans, sneakers, a white hoodie, and plaid or checkered boxers hanging out of his pants.

They may be traveling in a tan Pontiac Sunfire with a black top. They were last seen near the Burger King and deputies believe they may have left the area, the report says.

The pair is considered armed and dangerous and the sheriff’s office advises that the suspects should not be approached. Anyone who sees them or knows anything about the robbery is asked to call 911 immediately.
