Bradenton adult shop robbed

Josh Cascio reporting

- Three men robbed C & J's Adult Shop in Bradenton at gunpoint, and deputies have yet to find them.


"Most people come in to buy movies or magazines or something and they leave,” said store manager John Headley. "But these 3 guys they wanted the money.” 


New crystal clear surveillance video from inside the sex-shop shows the moments when manager John Headley came face to face with the barrel of a cocked pistol. 


"One guy just ran behind the counter, had the gun in my face and he said don’t try anything or he'd bust me,” he described.


While that suspect takes money from the cash drawer another acts as a lookout, the third is somewhere outside the store.


"I've never had a gun in my face before,” said Headley. "As they were taking money out of the drawer and they were leaving I said you know you’re on camera and it didn't even faze them.”


Deputies say their getaway car was parked behind a nearby business. It’s an older model Buick.


"When someone comes into a store and it seems to be well orchestrated chances are they're going to do to it again,” said Dave Bristow, with the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office. 


"I hope they find them we're going to prosecute,” said Headley.
