DADE CITY -- Sheriff's deputies are looking for three men who held another man at gunpoint Friday afternoon and forced him to hand over $840, according to an incident report.
Kevin Nobles, 21, of Webster told deputies that he had just parked his pickup truck outside SAA Beauty Supply, 37330 Lock St., about 3:30 p.m. when a man walked up with a black handgun in his waistband.
"You're taking us for a ride," the man told Nobles, according to a report.
He and two other men got into Nobles' truck, and Nobles drove them around. When he approached Oak Street, the first man ordered Nobles to stop and said, "Give me your wallet. How much money you got?" a report states.
Nobles handed over about $840. He told deputies he had recently cashed a check and was on his way to buy a car when he stopped at the beauty supply store for a drink.
Nobles said he had asked the men not to steal the truck, explaining that it belonged to his mother.
"I don't want your truck or your life, just your money," the robber said. "I need it more than you. I'm in a bad time now."
The men then got out of the truck. Nobles drove off and called deputies.
Nobles told deputies that the man who approached him was black, about 6 feet tall and about 18 years old. The man wore a black skull cap, a black sweat shirt and dark pants, deputies said.
Physical descriptions of the other men were not available.
