The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to arrests of three men after three armed robberies in the span of three days in Hollywood.
The holdups happened between Sept. 19 and 21 at a Shell gas station, a Subway store and the Bonjour Food Market, police said.
Clear surveillance videos show at least two men walking into the gas station at 815 N. Federal Highway, into the market at 312 N. Federal Highway and into the sandwich shop at 2312 Hollywood Boulevard.
One of them would pull out a gun and point it at the clerk while another emptied the cash register before they walked out the door together.
The videos show some customers were in the businesses at the time, but no one was apparently injured.
The robbers got away with about $400 from one holdup and undisclosed amounts in the others. They may have driven off in a newer model, possibly silver, four-door, mid-size sedan, police said.
Detectives are asking anyone who may have information about any of these three suspects to call Hollywood Police at 954-967-4411, or Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-8477.
