Would-be robbers make off with nothing from auto parts store

BOCA RATON – Two would-be robbers got away with nothing in an attempted heist at a local auto parts show reported April 5 at about 9:45 p.m.

The victim and witness, both employees of Advanced Auto Parts, 1776 North Dixie Highway, had just closed up the store and were walking to their respective cars when the victim was approached by two unknown males.

One suspect told the victim to give him his cell phone, money, and jewelry. The victim refused and yelled to the other employee to “get his weapon” out of the car and told the suspects he was calling the police.

The witness ran to his car and retrieved a baseball bat. As the witness ran toward the victim and suspects, the suspects fled toward the rear of the business and jumped the wall.

If anyone has information about this crime, they are asked to call Detective Scott Hanley at (561) 338-1344 or Palm Beach County Crime Stoppers at (800) 458-TIPS.
