The Ensley Walmart on Pensacola Boulevard was robbed Tuesday morning.

A male wearing a white hoodie went to the customer service counter and passed a note stating that it was robbery, according to Escambia County Sheriff’s Office Commander Andrew Hobbs.

The suspect did not display a weapon, Hobbs said.

The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office is asking anyone with information on the inciden to call the ECSO at (850) 436-9620 or Crime Stoppers at (850) 433-STOP. Callers to Crime Stoppers can remain anonymous and are eligible for a cash reward.

    He had to go to customer service, there weren’t any cashiers to rob…

    Hoodies are not worn as a fashion statement. It’s to conceal identity. They should be banned indoors. Especially in the month of May this far south

    Lets say he got $1000.

    Walmart loses $1000 to an armed robber. No one cares.

    Walmart installs $50,000 worth of cameras and hires people to watch and repair them. Everyone wanders why the prices suddenly increased. Deep south republican claim big brother is profiling them by recording their walmart purchases into FBI databases.

    We can look at a rock 197 million miles away and tell how old it is and what it is made of but we don’t have the technology to photograph people going in and out of Walmart and make a clear identification.

    Robbery with no weapon vs. Armed Robbery carry different sentencing guidelines.

    If no one saw a gun, then robbery and this thug will be out on the streets again after serving very little time.

    I know this because a former neighbor robbed 3 banks in Pensacola (no weapon just a note) and received 7 yrs in prison. His family said it was a blessing that he was in Prison with liver cancer, no prior health insurance, but the Prison system was giving him medications and treatment.

    @ Seale and Harris

    The ECSO substation is not like a fire department. The officers are not standing by at the station waiting for an emergency, they are out in the community answering calls.

    Just FYI to anyone questioning the camera quality: this store likely has $300k -$400k shrink per year (theft). The cameras aren’t as much to combat shoplifting and theft as they are used for liability protection against fraudulent injury lawsuits.

    And by all means let’s keep wearing those masks. We have a real good idea of what his face looks like, don’t we?

    How much money did he get ??? His sentence ,50+ yrs….& or 1year for every dollar he stole……$1,500.00 dollars =1,500 years……& no parole.

    There are always armed shoppers in Walmart

  12. fisherman on May 11th, 2021 5:16 pm

    I bet there were plenty of armed shoppers in Walmart at the time.

    In response to WM Employee, you’re comments are correct because I have seen this same method of ROBBERY and it is very likely this was just a trial run.
    Walmart wants no weapons concealed or otherwise on their property. So what that accomplishes is a safer area of choice for today’s THUG.

  14. WM employee on May 11th, 2021 3:05 pm

    Point blank, whether a gun was shown or not, employees don’t know whether he did and whether he would actually shoot. Everyone is so concerned about everything but the fact that, had he had a weapon and began shooting, how many employees and customers were in the possible range. As an employee, and not even knowing until the cops showed up that there was even a situation, I think its bull that there isn’t any more security at any WM. Today’s world is filled with too many that are desperate during times like now, angry, depressed, suicidal, crazy, lazy, and any other reason they have to do stupid crap, and WM is known for having a lot of cash in the store at most any time, making them a prime target, especially this store being as large and busy as it is. The suspect got away and the employees got a good scare … but what happens next time, and if there really is a gun? There should be some sort of internal security, other than having to wait on the cops. How many bullets can be shot in even a single minute? I don’t know about other WM employees, but I have a family and kids, I don’t like the idea that we have absolutely nothing protecting us, especially the area I’m in.

    I agree!! Multi million dollar store and not using top quality security cameras. What ever happened to plain clothes detectives walking around the store always on the lookout for would be shop lifters and others?!?!?

  16. Person on May 11th, 2021 1:22 pm

    This walmart has always been sketchy.

  17. Dianna Harris on May 11th, 2021 1:15 pm

    Police sub station right across the street

  18. Brad on May 11th, 2021 12:51 pm

    He should have at least got an application while he was there

  19. J.Larry Seale on May 11th, 2021 11:52 am

    right across from the sheriff sub station…..
    that takes some nerve

    Maybe someone will recognize that emblem on his shirt and the backpack straps.

    >>A multi-billion dollar company can’t afford top quality cameras

    This is a cell phone photo of an image printed on paper provided to us quickly by the ECSO. That played into the quality.

  22. Weak on May 11th, 2021 11:39 am

    Boy ain’t even have no weapon and he tryna act hard. LOOOL

  23. Marshall on May 11th, 2021 11:30 am

    A multi-billion dollar company can’t afford top quality cameras??? What a waste!
