    • Armed Robbery


    On August 8, 2013 at approximately 7:22 a.m., deputies responded to a business robbery that had just occurred at the Git-N-Go Food Store located at 6912 Causeway Blvd. in Tampa. Deputies learned that the suspect robbed the store at gunpoint and, after receiving cash from the clerk, ran from the scene. A witness saw the suspect running and followed him in his vehicle. The witness pursued the suspect as the suspect pointed a gun at him several times. At that point, the witness decided to call law enforcement and return to the scene. Deputies set up a perimeter and located Alberto Romero a quarter-mile away from the scene at Tidewater Trail & Windermere Way. Romero was in possession of the cash and admitted to committing the crime. Romero was arrested and booked into the Orient Road Jail. We will not be releasing the witness' information.
