Store Clerk Pulls Gun, Scares Away Robbers

Police Investigate Armed Robbery At Regency Store

A clerk at a Regency area clothing store scared away a group of robbers with a gun when she produced her own handgun during afternoon shakedown, according to authorities.

Detectives with the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office on Thursday afternoon launched an investigation of an armed robbery at the 904 Fashion store in the 10000 block of Atlantic Boulevard.

According to authorities, four or five men walked into the store and started grabbing clothes and then produced a gun and tried to take money from the store’s clerk.

The store manager and JSO said the store clerk produced her own handgun from her purse and fired some shots at the robbers.

The men ran from store and then fled the scene in a vehicle. The thieves did not get away with much merchandise or money, authorities said.

Thursday’s robbery was not 904 Fashion’s first run in with a group of robbers. In July, some smash-and-grab thieves robbed the store.

Surveillance video from the July incident shows a truck smashing into the storefront and then several people running in and stealing clothing.

It remains unclear whether the two robberies are related.
