HOLIDAY — Pasco sheriff's deputies are looking for the man who robbed a Sweetbay supermarket pharmacy about 11:30 a.m. Friday.
Authorities say the man approached the pharmacy counter, displayed a gun wrapped in newspaper and demanded the clerk give him OxyContin, a potent, addictive painkiller.
The robber received an undisclosed amount, then fled the store at 3406 U.S. 19. No one was injured.
The robber is a white man, 25 to 35 years old, about 6 feet tall and 200 pounds. He was wearing a Rays baseball cap, sunglasses, a dark-colored, long-sleeve dress shirt, brown tie, light-colored dress pants and black shoes, the Sheriff's Office said.
Anyone with any information is asked to call Detective Greg Hinnant toll-free at 1-800-854-2862.
