Man with knife robs Spring Hill CVS of oxycodone

SPRING HILL — Hernando County authorities were looking for a suspect Thursday morning in the robbery of a CVS drugstore on Spring Hill Drive.

Deputies received a call from the CVS store at 11115 Spring Hill Drive, at the intersection with Mariner Boulevard, about 2:35 a.m. Thursday reporting that a white male between the ages of 25 and 30 had entered the store, gone to the pharmacy, confronted the pharmacist and demanded "oxys," short for oxycodone. The man displayed a knife, took prescription medication from the shelves, then fled.

The suspect was last seen heading east and then north from the store, but a search of the area was unsuccessful.

The man was described as about 6 feet tall, 185 pounds, with either blue or green eyes and possibly short, dark hair. He was wearing a white hooded sweatshirt with a black-patterned design, dark pants and black shoes. He had a white-colored mask covering the lower part of his face. The hood of the sweatshirt covered the top of the man's head and was pulled down to just above the eyes. The man was also wearing white cloth gloves.

Anyone with information was asked to call the Hernando County Sheriff's Office at (352) 754-6830 or the anonymous tips line toll-free at 1-866-990-8477.
