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 or text CTSB plus a tip to 274637.

  3. Review: Jason Aldean fires up a country-dude party at Tampa's MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre


    Country music has a dude problem.

    I’m not talking about the proliferation of mindless bro country over the past half-decade, nor am I referring to the fact that most of Nashville’s best music these days comes not from said bros, from female singers and songwriters.
