HOBE SOUND, Fla. -- The Martin County Sheriff's Office is looking to identify two men who perpetrated an armed robbery early Monday in Hobe Sound.

On Monday, June 18, 2018 at approximately 2:30 a.m., a male entered the Circle K store at 8755 SE Federal Highway in Hobe Sound and attempted to buy mango flavored Juul e-cigarette cartridges. The clerk was suspicious of his identification and denied the sale. That male then left the store and got into a white Chevrolet Silverado with an extended cab. He drove the vehicle to the south end of the parking lot and parked.

A short time later two suspects entered the store. One of the males jumped the counter and robbed the clerk.

One suspect was wearing a white hockey mask, black shorts, black shoes and white socks. He had a black shirt covering his head and neck.

The second suspect was wearing a green shirt pulled over his face and shoulders, silver and black shorts and a black hat.

If you can identify these individuals you are urge to call the Martin County Sheriff’s Office at 772-220-7060.
