Crime Stoppers of Tampa Bay offers reward over Hudson CVS robbery


Reward offered for man who tried to rob CVS

Crime Stoppers of Tampa Bay is offering a reward of up to $1,000 for information that leads to the identification and arrest of the man who tried to rob the CVS Pharmacy at 13839 Little Road. The man entered the store about 5 p.m. March 1 and walked back to the pharmacy area. He handed the pharmacist a note demanding painkillers. The suspect kept his hand in his right pocket and made non-verbal cues as if he had a gun, authorities said. He eventually fled the store without receiving any pills. Anyone with any information about the identity and whereabouts of this suspect and who wants to be eligible for a cash reward can call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-873-TIPS (8477), report anonymously online at or text CSTB plus the tip to CRIMES (274637).


Feedback sought on Chasco Fiesta

Want a say on how things went at last month's Chasco Fiesta? The City Council will hold a work session tonight to discuss parade safety — including this year's police crackdown on people throwing beads from the floats — as well as the city's regulations of downtown bars' outdoor alcohol sales during special events. The work session begins at 6 p.m., an hour before the regularly scheduled City Council meeting. Some paradegoers had complained that police enforcement of the bead policy was arbitrary and heavy-handed. Meanwhile, some bar owners criticized new regulations on the outdoor alcohol sales, including the requirement to hire an off-duty officer. The meeting is at City Hall, 5919 Main St.

City candidates to appear at forum

Voters have a chance Wednesday to hear — and question — the three candidates running for City Council. Council candidates Marilynn deChant, Judy DeBella Thomas and Ginny Miller will appear at a forum scheduled to run from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. The three women — deChant and Thomas are incumbents and Miller is a former council member — are running for two open seats. Election day is April 14. Citizens are encouraged to show up early to submit written questions for the candidates. Kelly Maki, a longtime resident active in community events and a political science major at Troy University, is helping organize the event. For information, call her at (727) 992-8004.
