An armed robber has stolen a 12-pack of beer from the same 7-Eleven store twice in a week, police say.
Surveillance video captured the robber inside the store at 2800 Sunrise Highway in Bellmore just after 2:30 a.m. Monday. Police said the 6-foot-tall man walked into the store, took a 12-pack of beer and headed to the counter.
The clerk recognized the man from last week, when he allegedly stole beer from the store. The clerk told the man he'd have to pay for the beer, and the robber pointed a black handgun at him and walked out of the store with the beer, police said.
The clerk was alone in the store at the time but wasn't hurt. He told police he saw the robber get into a car on the passenger side and that the car fled south on Bellmore Avenue.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 800-244-TIPS.
