Search for armed robbery suspect on LI who torched getaway vehicle

Police on Long Island are searching for the suspect in an armed robbery who then apparently set his getaway vehicle on fire.

Cops say the man robbed a 7-Eleven in Hewlett Friday morning, then fled in a white vehicle similar to an Access-A-Ride bus.

Just over an hour later, that same bus was discovered on fire at Green Acres Mall, but the man was nowhere to be found.
