A recycling center located across the street from the Lowe’s home improvement center in the Bayview was robbed at gunpoint Saturday morning, police said.
A 21-year-old employee at Our Planet Recycling at 531 Bayshore Blvd. told police the crook had turned in a ticket for recycling just before 7:30 a.m. When the victim opened her register, police said, the suspect, a man in his 30s, pulled out a handgun and bag and demanded cash.
He fled on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash and had not been found as of Monday morning, police said. The employee was reportedly not injured.
