Hillsborough deputies looking for tips in Valrico Publix pharmacy robbery

VALRICO — Deputies are seeking the public's help in finding the man who robbed a Public pharmacy at knifepoint last week.

The robbery happened at the Publix at 1930 Highway 60 E on April 7, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies said a man walked behind the pharmacy counter about 7 p.m. and confronted two employees with a pocket knife.

He wanted oxycodone, deputies said.

The man led the pharmacist to a medicine cabinet and took out an undisclosed amount of oxycodone.

The suspect drove away in a gray, four-door Mazda made in the late 1980s or early 1990s. It had a bent tag.

The man was described as white, in his mid 30s to early 40s, with short brown hair, about 6 feet tall, and weighing between 210 to 230 pounds.

He was last seen wearing a dark baseball cap or visor with a Tampa Bay Buccaneers logo, a Buccaneers Super Bowl T-shirt, sunglasses, camouflage shorts and brown sandals.

The Sheriff's Office asks anyone with information about the suspect to call (813) 247-8200 or Crime Stoppers toll-free at 1-800-873-8477.
