It’s happened again. Sharps Liquor in the Flagler Plaza shopping center in Palm Coast was robbed. This latest robbery–the third since October 2011–happened under a bright sun on a busy shopping day almost at high noon, at 11:17 this morning.

Flagler County Sheriff’s deputies are looking for a dark gray, newer model Camaro believed to be possibly connected with the robbery, the sheriff’s office said in a release issued early this afternoon.

According to the release, initial information indicates that at around 11:17 this morning, a white male, entered the Sharps Liquor Store at 103 Flagler Plaza Drive. The suspect was wearing dark gray gym pants with white stripes about two inches wide down the legs, a dark hoody over his head, a mask that covered his mouth and nose, dark black sunglasses and black gloves with white stripes.

The man then pulled a gun, ordered the clerk to sit down and then took an unknown amount of money from the register. There were no customers in the store at the time and no one was injured.

Surveillance video showed the man fled the store, jumping into the Camaro, which then headed south on Old Kings Road.

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to contact the Sheriff’s Office at (386) 313-4911.

On Oct. 1, the same store was the target of an armed robbery by two black men, both in their early 30s, in later afternoon. They got away with some cash and a $100 bottle of Hennessy, one of the better French cognacs on the market.

Last Oct. 31, at mid-morning, the same store was targeted by a man who grabbed the store clerk at gunpoint and ordered her to hand over money. The assailant, later identified as Jacquez Roland of Service Tree Place in Palm Coast, was arrested and charged with a series of armed burglaries, including one at the Microtel on Old Kings Road. He’d allegedly used a zip tie to tie his victims in each of the burglaries.

    I said it when it happened before. Until they take the covering off the windows so people can see whats going on in the store, this will continue. Its a known fact that covering the windows like they do with advertisements or whatever else is a bad idea. The owner of the store is safe at home, and can always get someone to risk his or her life for 8 or 9 dollars an hour.

    The robber forgot the Hennessy. He’s absent-minded and will be aprehended posthaste!

    This must be the most robbed store in this County. Why doesn’t the owner take more precautions to prevent it?

    Geez he ook a road thats easy to block off , you`d think they`d of gotten him some where between 100 and old dixie, unless he lives in Halifax Plantation

    No surprise.Statistically, liquor stores are favored targets by criminals. Add in the fact this store is located only feet from the I-95 entrance so a quick getaway is assured.

    The owner should install some really trick anti crime strategies if he intends to remain safe. Hope he wises up because criminals care NOTHING for laws or regulations.

    Move the store to Florida Park Drive. The Barney Fife’s are there all the time getting those high rollers on radar!!!!!
