The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office needs your help identifying the man seen on surveillance video robbing a Tampa Auto Zone. 

On Wednesday, July 27 around 2:15 p.m., the unidentified suspect entered the Auto Zone on West Hillsborough Avenue and approached the counter with an item to purchase. He then quietly told the store clerk that he wanted money from the cash register and told her that he had a gun. Before the clerk opened the cash register, the suspect pulled out the small revolver and pointed it at the clerk. 

Newly released surveillance video shows the robbery. The man is described as a white male, mid 20s to 30s, approximately 6 feet tall, weighing about 190 pounds with facial stubble. He was last seen wearing a gray Tampa Bay baseball cap, sunglasses, blue jeans, a dark blue t-shirt and black shoes. He was carrying a small black revolver in his front pocket.
