Police: Robber wishes Orlando store clerk 'Happy holidays' after taking cash

ORLANDO, Fla. — Orlando police released a surveillance photo Wednesday of a man who they said robbed a store on International Drive Saturday night.

Police said the man walked into the Bev Fly Wine store on International Drive, wearing a dark-colored T-shirt, black pants and black tennis shoes with white on the upper shoe and a hat.

The man approached the clerk and told him to open the drawer, and wished him “happy holidays,” police said.

Authorities said the clerk complied and handed the man cash from the drawer. The man then walked around the counter and exited the store with his hat tucked under his left arm, police said.

The man was described as measuring between 5 feet 10 inches and 6 feet tall, with a thin build. He has thinning black hair and a mustache and beard.

Police said the man is between the ages of 35 and 45, and is possibly a transient.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crimeline at 1-800-423-TIPS.
