Masked robber in Marion County
OCALA, Fla. -

Marion County deputies are searching for a masked man caught on video robbing a gas station in Ocala on Tuesday night.

Deputies said the culprit walked into a Diamond Oil gas station just before 8:30 p.m. Tuesday night armed with a handgun. It's not clear how much the culprit got away with.

He's described as wearing light colored pants, a dark colored sweatshirt with writing on the chest, a greenish colored mask, black gloves that may have a Halloween white bones design and sandals with dark tall socks.

“We are hoping, you will look at the video and recognize the suspect’s walk, the style of clothing and provide detectives with good information that will lead to an arrest,” said Judge Cochran, Marion County Public Information Officer in a release.

Contact deputies if you have any information on the robbery.
