Barflies drink as bar is robbed

Security footage shows unfazed patrons continue to drink as robbers armed with shotgun and assault rifle hold up Florida bar.

(WFLA) Two armed robbers ran into a Sarasota, Florida bar with guns drawn Sunday and quickly robbed the place while patrons were drinking just feet away.

Security footage shows some of those patrons were so oblivious, they didn’t even realize a robbery was going on right in front of them.

One of the robbers brandished a shotgun and the other carried an assault rifle.

Once inside, the two men shoved their way toward the bar, pushing customers out of their path. They then marched the bartender over to the register with his hands held high.

“One of the bartenders came up to me and said, ‘We’re being robbed. Don’t do anything, just give them the money from the register,'” recalled owner Stephen Acker.

“It happened so quickly, didn’t really have time to panic,” he said.

Acker saw one of the suspects racking his shotgun. He quickly gave them the money.

As all this was going on, most of the patrons didn’t even notice. One man kept drinking just feet away.

“There were people asking for drinks whilst it was going on,” said Acker.
