A woman is still shaken after a guy broke into a business Tuesday morning, zip tied her hands and robbed the store.
It happened at the Town and Country in Port Charlotte.
NBC2 talked to the woman on the phone.
Her name is Janet Heavener, and she’s the manager at Town and Country, which is an aluminum wholesaler located in Port Charlotte.
Janet did not want to talk on camera as she’s still rattled from a shocking start to her morning, with the robber still on the loose.
Police cruisers and crime scene tape are not the usual start to a morning outside the Town and Country on Kenilworth Boulevard.
Police said at around 6:45 Tuesday morning Janet opened the store by herself as usual. A few minutes later she heard a knock on the door. When she answered a man pushed her over and zip tied her hands behind her back.
The man got away with more than $400.
When the robber left, Janet dialed 911 with her nose, just as other employees arrived for work.
Charlotte County Sheriff’s deputies are still looking for the male suspect.
Janet did not see any type of getaway car when the robber left.
