Pinellas Deputies Identify Burger King Robbers
The two men have been charged with a similar incident in Manatee County, according to the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office.
PINELLAS COUNTY – Two men accused of robbing a Palmetto Burger King are likely the same men who stole from a Largo Burger King, the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office said.
Ryan Anderson, 31, of Pinellas Park, and Antonio Berrios, 26, of St. Petersburg, have each been charged with one count of robbery and one count of kidnapping. Those charges stem from a robbery Tuesday (Oct. 3) at a Burger King in Manatee County. Palmetto police said the men entered the restaurant and robbed the store manager at gunpoint. They were dressed all in black.
Charges are pending in Pinellas where deputies said Anderson and Berrios are are likely responsible for the Sept. 26 armed robbery at a Largo Burger King and an attempted armed robbery Tuesday (Oct. 3) at a Burger King in Palm Harbor.
Deputies said Berrios and Anderson used the same method of operation to commit the Palmetto robberies and their black clothing was similar to those worn by the Pinellas County robbery suspects.
In the Sept. 26 Largo robbery, deputies said two men armed with a handgun entered the Burger King Restaurant at 3575 East Bay Drive in unincorporated Largo about 4:40 a.m. Once inside the restaurant, both climbed over the counter and forced the restaurant manager into the office at gunpoint. They demanded access to the safe and obtained cash. They fled westbound on foot.
They were described as wearing long sleeve black shirts, black pants, black shoes, black cotton ski masks, and gloves on their hands.
