Till Snatch Suspect Identified
On 2/27/13, a white male suspect stole money from the register of the BP located at 3821 SW College Rd. That suspect has been identified.
On yesterday's date, 2/27/13, an unknown white male entered the BP at 3821 SW College Rd. in Ocala and requested to use the phone. He advised that he was broken down & needed to call someone to assist him. He lingered for about a half an hour in the store. Then, while still holding the cordless handset to the store's phone, the suspect reached into the register and grabbed an undetermined amount of cash and fled on foot.

The suspect made no threats/demands nor did he display any type of weapon. There were no injuries. However, his taking of the handset for the phone did cause a delay in the clerk being able to call for emergency services.

Following the publishing of the still photo of the suspect from the surveillance footage on Ocala.com, he was able to be identified. The suspect, whom we now have probable cause to arrest, is identified as Joshua K. Fox, DOB 8/1/88. He is supposed to be driving a 1997 white Ford Ranger. He was last seen at his place of employment located at Holiday Inn Express on Baseline Rd. in Ocala.

Anyone with information on the location of Fox is asked to contact the Ocala Police Department at 352-369-7000 or contact Crime Stoppers of Marion County at 352-368-STOP (7867), www.ocalacrimestoppers.com, or text to 274637 Key word 368STOP.
