If you’ve been charged with a crime like armed robbery, it is imperative that you enlist the services of a Miami criminal defense lawyer to defend you in a court of law.

The two suspects who broke into a Winn-Dixie Supermarket on the morning of Wednesday, May 29, and robbed a manager and a number of employees at gunpoint will need a seasoned Miami criminal defense lawyer once they are caught.

According to NBC 6 South Florida, the men forced entry into the store at around 3:40 a.m. and waited until the workers arrived at approximately 6 a.m. The criminals then ambushed the victims and made the manager open a safe in the back office and give them the money from inside.

Fortunately, no one was injured during the armed robbery, but police have asked anyone with information on the crime to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.

“They knew exactly where to walk in the store, what aisle to take, the quickest route to the front service counter,” Sergeant Bill Bamford told the source. “They knew to force the manager back into the manager’s office. Could it have been some sort of surveillance they were doing? We’re not sure. Or were they former employees?”
