Boca Raton Police seek suspect in armed robbery On Sunday, February 11, 2018, just after 5:00 p.m., Boca Raton Police responded to the 600 block of S Dixie Highway in reference to an armed robbery that just occurred. The victim left Trader Joe’s and proceeded to walk home along Dixie Highway with her purse and grocery bags in hand. As the victim crossed SE 6th Street, a dark-colored sedan, possibly a Toyota Corolla, was stopped at the stop sign. The victim walked around the rear of the vehicle and proceeded northbound. A male then exited the front passenger seat of the vehicle and approached the victim from behind. The male pointed a black semi-automatic firearm at her head and grabbed her purse out of her hand. He then pushed her to the ground before running back to the vehicle. The vehicle fled northbound on Dixie Highway at a high rate of speed. The suspect is described as a black male, approximately 5’5”, 165 pounds with short dreaded hair. He was wearing a dark sweatshirt and red pants. If you have any information about this case, please contact Detective Volguardson at (561) 338-1308.

If you got an alert this morning from the NWS regarding a Tsunami Warning, it was only a test.

For one city resident their morning routine was anything but routine. This morning they woke up and found an 8 foot alligator in their pool on SW 14th Drive. A Boca Raton Police Officer stood by, at a safe distance, while waiting for MyFWC to arrive and remove it.
