MERRITT ISLAND, Florida -- The Brevard County Sheriff’s Office is currently investigating an armed robbery that occurred at the Aflac Insurance Office located at 2094 North Courtenay Parkway (State Road 3) in Merritt Island, Florida. 


At approximately 9:55 a.m., a white man in his early 20’s, wearing a white shirt, black pants, black baseball cap, with some facial hair and a thin build, entered the business.
