Clearwater man arrested in medication robbery

Pinellas deputies arrested a Clearwater man Friday who they say grabbed a woman by the neck and stole her medication earlier this month as she left a pharmacy.

After he was arrested at his home in the 2200 block of Gulf-to-Bay Boulevard, authorities said Anthony James Henderson, 37, admitted to the robbery outside the Trust Pharmacy in Palm Harbor, detectives said.

The day of the robbery, April 8, witnesses saw a man with white hair wearing a blue sweatshirt and plaid shorts pacing the sidewalk. When the woman exited the pharmacy, deputies said, Henderson grabbed her by the throat, threw her on the ground and threatened her.

Henderson then made off with the woman's medication, authorities said.

Henderson was charged with strong arm robbery, as well as failing to appear for a previous theft charge. He was taken to Pinellas County Jail, where he was held Friday night on $10,513 bail.
