Deputies arrest pajama-clad man in Tampa Publix oxycodone robbery

TAMPA — A 27-year-old man accused of jumping over a Publix pharmacy counter in his pajamas is now wearing a jail uniform.

Anthony James Moldenhauer of Riverview was arrested Wednesday and was being held without bail on charges of possession of cocaine, oxycodone, methadone and Xanax, paraphernalia and robbery.

Publix security cameras captured the robbery Sunday inside the store at 19221 N Dale Mabry Highway. The images helped authorities identify Moldenhauer, deputies said.

He was arrested at his home, 19224 Lake Allen Road, about 7:30 p.m. Wednesday. That's when deputies said they found the additional drugs.

Moldenhauer has a history of drug arrests in Hillsborough dating to 2006, according to jail records.
