Hillsborough deputies seek man with swastika tattoo who tried to rob drugstore

TAMPA — The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office wants the public's help in catching an attempted armed robbery suspect who has a swastika tattooed over his right eye.

About 8 p.m. Friday, a man gave a pharmacy clerk a note demanding pain pills at Walgreens, 13130 N Dale Mabry Highway. The man implied he had a weapon and that he was willing to use it.

The clerk refused to comply, and the man ran away, deputies said.

The man is described as white, in his late 20s, 5 feet 11 inches, 145 to 155 pounds with medium-length dark hair, facial stubble and a goatee. He was last seen wearing a gray baseball cap, a black hooded sweatshirt and a plaid shirt with black pants.

The Sheriff's Office asks that anyone with information call (813) 247-8200 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-873-8477, visit crimestopperstb.com or text CTSB plus a tip to 274637.

  3. FBI: Florida man sympathized with IS, wanted to bomb mall

    Courts

    MIAMI (AP) — A Florida man who described himself as a sympathizer of the Islamic State extremist group faces terrorism-related charges stemming from a purported plot to bomb a Miami-area shopping mall, according to court documents filed Monday.

    An undated file image posted on an extremist website on Jan. 14, 2014, shows fighters from the Islamic State group marching in Raqqa, Syria. The group champions a hyper-religious lifestyle grounded in a self-proclaimed caliphate, but most recruits have a superficial understanding of religion and are largely ignorant in the laws of Islam.
