Pasco deputies are looking for this SUV, which was the getaway vehicle of a pair of men who held up Sam’s Beach Bar early June 3. The vehicle is a four-door SUV, possibly blue in color, that may be a Chevrolet, deputies said.

HUDSON — Pasco deputies are asking the public for help in identifying a pair of robbers who held up a popular restaurant and bar at Hudson Beach.

According to the Sheriff’s Office, the robbers, one of whom was armed with a black handgun, forced their way into Sam’s Beach Bar, at the end of Clark Street, between 8 a.m. and 8:24 a.m. on June 3 and robbed the beachfront establishment.

Suspect 1 is described as a white male, possibly in his 30s, approximately 6 feet tall. He’s described as having short dirty blonde hair, blue eyes, tattoo sleeves on both arms and wearing a dark shirt.

Suspect 2 is described as a white male, around 5 foot 6 or 5 foot 7, possibly in his 20s, with light brown hair.

The suspects fled in a dark colored, possibly blue, four door SUV, which may be a Chevrolet.
