Man robs Circle K store; police have no suspects

HUDSON -- A masked man who appeared to be carrying a rifle robbed a convenience store early Wednesday morning, Pasco County Sheriff's officials said.

The man escaped the Circle K at 10011 Hudson Ave. with a small amount of cash from the register at about 3:30 a.m., sheriff's spokesman Jon Powers said Thursday. A search by deputies and a sheriff's office dog didn't locate any suspects.

The robber is described as a white man with black jogging pants with a white stripe, a light-colored mask and black Converse tennis shoes.

Police arrest girl, 17, in stolen taxi van, chase

NEW PORT RICHEY -- A 17-year-old girl was arrested Tuesday after, police said, she stole a minivan taxicab from in front of Community Hospital and led police on a nearly 5-mile chase.

A New Port Richey officer responded shortly before 9:30 p.m. to Community Hospital, where a Yellow Cab minivan had been reported stolen, according to an officer report. On the way, the officer passed the stolen van, turned around and turned on his patrol car lights and siren.

The driver wouldn't stop, police said.

The driver led the officer north on Grand Boulevard, off Grand in a circle back to Grand and eventually south to Darlington Road and Sunray Drive. Along the way, the officer wrote, the vehicle ran at least five stop signs and two red lights. It also ran off the road and swerved into oncoming traffic before running over the curb and crashing into the woods near Darlington and Sunray, police said.

The 17-year-old got out of the car and tried to run, but officers arrested her.

The Times is not printing her name because of her age.

She faces several charges including fleeing and attempting to elude and driving without a driver's license, police said.
