Early Christmas Morning, Titusville Police & Brevard County Sheriff’s Office received a call for an armed robbery at the Circle K at Dairy & Singleton.
The male fled on foot into a wooded area near Dairy & Old Dixie. Titusville Police were on scene within moments and secured the area. Due to the thick brush in the area, Police requested the Sheriff’s helicopter for aerial surveillance.
The Sheriff’s STAR helicopter ultimately found the suspect, later described as a white male juvenile. The male was described to have had a ‘glock-style’ handgun. The male was apprehended after STAR pilots guided K9 officers to find the male laying in the brush.
The juvenile was taken to Parrish Medical Center for evaluations, then given a ride to the Brevard County Jail.
The store clerk was said to be ok, with no major injuries.
If TPD issues any press releases, I’ll have them posted shortly after.
