Armed Robbery At Kangaroo Express

COCOA, Florida -- Agents from the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office are investigating an armed robbery that occurred early this morning at the Kangaroo Express located at 4775 Fay Blvd, Cocoa. 

Shortly before 3:00 a.m., on June 5, 2013, a robber entered the Kangaroo Express and walked up to the front counter to make a purchase.  Once the store clerk opened the cash register, the robber demanded the cash from the register while keeping his right hand in his jacket pocket implying he had a weapon.  The store clerk complied with the robber's demands and was not injured.
