Store's video catches foiled robbery demand

Authorities are asking the public to help identify a woman captured on surveillance video as she attempted to rob a Walgreens two weeks ago. Police said she went into the drugstore at 605 S Pinellas Ave. after 9 p.m. Jan. 26, implied she had a gun and demanded money. The clerk did not give the woman any money, then left the register area to contact another employee. The woman then left the store. Surveillance video shows her leaving the property on a bicycle. She was last seen heading south from the parking lot, police said. The woman appears to be white and middle-aged, with brown shoulder-length hair. She was wearing blue sweatpants with two white stripes running down the side of the legs, a blue scarf with tassels and a blue jacket. She was carrying a light-colored purse. Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Brockew at the Tarpon Springs Police Department at (727) 938-2849.
