A man wanted for robbing a Bradford County convenience store was injured when his car crashed after a deputy tried to stop the vehicle.
The Bradford County Sheriffs' Office charged Talric M. Robinson, 41, of Jacksonville with armed robbery, aggravated assault, fleeing and attempting to elude and aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer.
Robinson was treated for minor injuries following the accident at Walnut Street and Call Street in downtown Starke, said Lt. W.H. "Bear" Bryan with the Sheriff's Office.
Officers received a report shortly before noon about a robbery at the 301 Quick Stop off U.S. 301, Bryan said.
A man, armed with a gun, entered the business and robbed the store.
Soon after, Sheriff's Office Sgt. George Konkel spotted a green Monte Carlo headed north on U.S. 301 in Starke. It matched a description of the vehicle at the robbery.
When the officer tried to pull over the car, it turned north on Walnut Street and sped up, Bryan said. But the driver lost control and crashed into a parked sports utility vehicle.
The pursuit lasted less than a mile, Bryan said.
The Sheriff's Office did not release information about how much money was stolen. However, Bryan said it had been recovered.
Robinson was being held at the Bradford County jail late Tuesday.
