Cash, Weapons Stolen From Bus in Wal-Mart Parking Lot

A bus that belonged to X-Centric Club in Deerfield Beach was robbed on January 2 -- and Broward Sheriff's Office detectives are still looking for the thief, who made off with $20,000 in cash and three handguns.

The incident occurred around 10:30 a.m., while the bus was parked at the Wal-Mart in Lauderdale Lakes. From the BSO release:

A nightclub employee, who was inside the bus, saw the man come in and reach for something near the driver's seat. The woman confronted the suspect, but he pushed her and ran out. The suspect jumped into the driver's seat of

a dark-color, 1991-1996 model, Ford Explorer, with a man in the passenger seat. The burglar got away with three bags: one contained $20,000; the other held three handguns, a Glock 19, a Smith & Wesson 380, and an Intratec Tec-9; and the third bag contained check books.
Full release is here. Surveillance video of the suspect is here.
