Hillsborough deputies seek Sam's Club liquor store robber

TAMPA — Deputies are seeking help identifying a man who robbed a liquor store at gunpoint last month.

About 4:40 p.m. Sept. 15, a man entered the Sam's Club liquor store at 2021 W Brandon Blvd. implying he was armed and demanding money, the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office said.

The robber ran away with cash toward the Providence Park Apartments.
