Woman Wanted in Multiple Miami-Dade Publix Armed Robberies

Police are searching for a woman they say is responsible for a series of armed robberies at Publix supermarkets in Miami-Dade.

The robberies date back to Sept. 30 and involve the same suspect, who investigators believe is between 25 and 35 years old, Miami-Dade Police said Friday.

In all three cases, the woman approached the clerk at the customer service desk and displayed a smart phone with a typed message stating, “This is a robbery. Put all the money from the register inside a bag. Don’t call the manager or the police. I have a gun,” police said.

The clerks complied and handed over the money from the registers. The subject then fled the stores on foot. No one was injured in any of the incidents.
