Hernando authorities seek man who robbed CVS

SPRING HILL

Deputies search for armed CVS robber

Hernando County authorities were looking for a suspect Thursday morning in the robbery of a CVS drugstore on Spring Hill Drive.

Deputies received a call from the CVS at 11115 Spring Hill Drive and Mariner Boulevard about 2:35 a.m. Thursday reporting that a white male between the ages of 25 and 30 had entered the store, gone to the pharmacy, confronted the pharmacist and demanded "oxys," short for oxycodone. The man displayed a knife, took prescription medication from the shelves, then fled.

The suspect was last seen heading east and then north from the store, but a search of the area was unsuccessful.

The man was described as about 6 feet tall, 185 pounds, with either blue or green eyes and possibly short dark hair. He was wearing a white hooded sweatshirt with a black-patterned design, dark pants and black shoes. He had a white-colored mask covering the lower part of his face. The hood of the sweatshirt covered the top of his head and was pulled down to just above the eyes. He was also wearing white cloth gloves.

Anyone with information was asked to call the Hernando County Sheriff's Office at (352) 754-6830 or the anonymous tips line at 1-866-990-8477.

PINE ISLAND

Swimming advisory issued for park

High bacteria levels in the gulf water at Alfred A. McKethan Park at Pine Island prompted the Hernando County Health Department to issue a swimming advisory on Thursday.

The department received test results indicating the water quality had dropped into the "poor" range. Water with high bacteria levels may pose an increased risk of disease exposure, especially to very young children, older adults and people with weakened immune systems.
