Suspect in September CVS robbery arrested

Pasco deputies have arrested a 46-year-old man accused of robbing a CVS pharmacy a couple of months ago.

A man walked into the store at 2513 U.S. 19 about 2:30 a.m. Sept. 21 and brought a package of candy to the register.

Then he put his hand behind his back, as if he had a gun, and told the cashier to empty the register or he would "blow (her) head off," according to a Pasco County Sheriff's Office report.

The man fled with about $125. Detectives say they have identified the robber as Michael Yaverski, who was arrested Tuesday on a charge of robbery.

Yaverski, of 5644 Oceanic Road in Holiday, remained at the Land O'Lakes jail on Wednesday in lieu of $100,000 bail.

Police: Men hit car on purpose, rob driver

Police say two men purposely hit another car early Wednesday so they could rob the driver.

The incident happened at 6:17 a.m. on Fort King Road, north of North Avenue. Zephyrhills police say a dark blue Toyota pickup with a dented tailgate bumped the victim's vehicle. When the victim stopped to check for damage, a man got out of the pickup, displayed a weapon and demanded money.

Zephyrhills police Capt. Robert McKinney said he could not comment on the type of weapon or gender and age of the victim. He said the robber stole the victim's cash.

The suspects are white males about 25 to 35 years old. One man was tall and thin. He wore a gray hooded sweatshirt, jeans and white tennis shoes. He was missing two bottom front teeth.

The second suspect was short and hefty, about 5 foot 7 inches and 250 pounds. He wore a dark blue hooded sweatshirt and jeans.

McKinney asks anyone with information to call the Police Department at (813) 780-0050.
