ENGLEWOOD, Fla. — According to the Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office, a suspect is in custody after deputies responded to reports of an armed robbery at a Dollar General in Englewood on April 18.

CCSO said when deputies arrived at the Dollar General, around 12:30 p.m., they found the suspect who tried to drive away.

Given the seriousness of the crime, deputies chased the suspect who CCSO says tried to ram a deputy's vehicle with their own.
